Tharshni Velauthapillai - Inter-Society Liaison
Coming in as a first year Life Sciences student, I had no idea what major I eventually wanted to do, but after taking both IntroPsych courses I realized that I had a keen interest in psychology that had gone unnoticed (and probably overshadowed by biology!) But, at the same time, I was nervous to indulge the remaining years of my undergrad in a subject that I had only recently explored. But, just like you will hear most BioPsychers say - this program turned out to be the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Not only did I have the opportunity to take courses from two different departments, but I also had the chance to do research in both departments (an independent study course and a thesis course). Overall, BioPsych has afforded me countless opportunities to utilize my academic strengths and seek out fulfilling experiences!
