These panels will provide our undergraduates with an excellent opportunity to learn more about how their psychology degrees from Miami can launch one’s career in many directions, and our students will get a chance to meet and network with Miami PSY alums who are out in the “real world” doing great things with their degrees! Special thanks to our entire Alumni Advisory Board and to Dr. Paul Flaspholer (chair of the PSY External Relations Committee) for putting this programming together!
