Miami had an indelible influence on me and was a foundational experience in my professional career. Miami’s school psychology program is respected in the community, in school districts, and graduate programs across the country. This respect affords unmatched options for obtaining a job directly out of the program or pursuing further educational opportunities as I did. The faculty took time to understand what I wanted, and helped me understand what I needed, and were eager to support me in reaching my goals. The faculty challenged my thinking by providing a diversity of opportunities and perspectives resulting in a well-rounded training experience. Perhaps most importantly, the culture created the opportunity to develop a close bond between students which, both during my training and since, has provided incredible support.
