Student Review: “The education and experience that the University of Wyoming has instilled for my future could be described as extremely beneficial and life altering. At the University of Wyoming, I had the privilege to interact very closely with the professors in the psychology department, providing assistance in research labs and projects. The courses were challenging and difficult at times but provided for an exceptional learning experience. The professors were also very approachable, understanding, and very generous in their ability to provide time and personalized care for each student. Even the online courses were incredibly enriching, and I found a few of them to be more enriching and qualitatively more valuable than some in class courses. The University of Wyoming is a Division 1 School, and the psychology program ranks within top 150 programs in the United States.” – Student at University of Wyoming
