"I think that one of the most unique features of the psychology program at Concordia University is the amount of interaction and support you receive from your professors. Speaking with a lot of my peers who did not graduate from Concordia, they are always surprised at how much care and concern the professors have for their students. The mentorship I have received from the professors has been instrumental in securing some of the biggest job opportunities and continuing education opportunities in my career and I am so thankful for that!"
