"The excellent reputation of Miami University's school psychology graduate program is known nationwide, which has given me a huge advantage when looking for jobs across the country. I've worked in three states (Ohio, Georgia, and now Hawaii) and I received multiple job offers in each state within a few weeks of posting my resume."
-Gina Federico Scheper, School Psychology Program Alum
