A few words from psychology students

“The quality of the instruction has been amazing. I was quite surprised by that. In my very first term the psychology professor who taught my class worked for NASA. That really made me sit up and take notice. This is for real. The environment is different, but the quality is exactly the same as what you would experience in a traditional classroom on campus.”
