Earning a graduate degree can be one way to gain not only knowledge, but real-world experience in your field. For Selena Marshall, who recently graduated with her Master of Science in Forensic Psychology, this was exactly the case thanks to her internship experience.
As an intern she was able to get hands-on experience working with those with mental health and substance abuse issues. This helped to elevate her learning beyond the textbook, providing valuable knowledge and motivation to continue to work with those within that population.
Selena attended the 2019 commencement ceremony and took some time to tell us about her internship and offer advice to future students.
