Caroline, from the DC area, wanted to explore a new part of the country and saw Ohio State (and Columbus) as a perfect blend between big city and college town. Before arriving at OSU, she knew psychology was the major for her and her passion for the field has only increased after taking coursework in Psychology and the Law, Positive Psychology, and Abnormal Psychology Analysis.
During her time here, Caroline completed two internships: one with the Homicide Cold Case Unit and the other with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She also spent nearly three months in Spain last summer living with a host family and studying at La Universidad de Salamanca. “One of my life goals is to become completely fluent in Spanish. . . . I definitely believe this experience was a significant step in attaining that goal.”
After graduation, Caroline plans to work in the federal law enforcement/criminal justice realm with a focus on rehabilitation and corrections. Her advice to other psychology major students: “Even if you are unsure of what career path you want to take, choose courses that seem to interest you. Get involved and make connections; your professors can be great resources!”
