How Psych department helped:  My career is the product of several mentoring relationships that began with the professors in the CU Psychology Department.  They pushed me to become a better writer, to thoroughly research unanswered questions, and to see both the theoretical and practical applications of the principles we studied.  Psychology touches on many aspects of our lives---even as an environmental attorney, I have addressed topics I first studied as a psychology student at Creighton (i.e., diminished capacity and expert witness credibility).
