The Applied Psychology department at UIC is both rigorous and inspiring. The faculty and staff take pride in their work and require all the students to push themselves to do their best work all the while encouraging critical thinking and scientific methods. I highly encourage students to take advantage of the wonderful research done on campus by volunteering to assist on a research project or take on an internship. I absolutely accredit my time in the program to where I am today.
