File Under: alumni, psychology

After completing her degree in Psychology at the Mount, Amanda Martin ’12 spent two years in a doctoral program in Neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati until she decided to take her career a step further by pursing her master’s degree in the Mount’s Initial Teacher Licensure program. She plans to teach life sciences courses for grades 7-12.

During her time at the University of Cincinnati, Martin recently published research on genetic causes of intellectual disabilities.  She says the classes at the Mount that prepared her most for graduate school at UC include Pseudoscience and Controversial Claims, Research I & II, Cognition and Memory, Biological Psychology and Animal Behavior.

“If you want to be prepared for the job market or for continued studies while making connections and friends along the way, you belong at the Mount,” says Martin.
