Application for Graduation

For a past week or two I have been contemplating whether or not I should take my Psychology degree out now or later. And I leaned towards now . A couple of days ago I logged in to the university’s website, entered my information and e-signed the forms to apply for graduation this summer, and should have the degree in my hands in August.

I only need one class to graduate and only because of having difficulties to transfer some of my old classes. It doesn’t really help that some of my old professors have already retired, and do I have syllabi of classes taken nearly a decade ago…? Nope. On the other hand, I don’t really care about that.

I have always loved studying, and math even more, so the last class, applied, scientific Calculus will be simply a blast! And against all the academic advisor’s recommendations of testing the language requirement (I am fluent in French, German, Italian, Finnish, Swedish – and speak a few words of Italian and Spanish), I also decided to take a Spanish class. Not only to get the credits but most importantly polish my Spanish skills. Quiero hablar Español fluido!  Although studies are not ending here… I keep doing research, and working towards the PhD so there is still a long academic journey ahead. But one box along the way will be checked.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Mrs. K – as always! It’s all about the love for learning, and daydreaming of being a university professor one day…

  1. I would LOVE to go back to school for my PsyD but I just cannot imagine taking a loan out for the program. We paid off my MA program already and I am not working so I can’t imagine telling my husband I need more $ for school!

    1. How about finding research funding through a grant? And some PhD programs also have stipends that cover tuition fees, or tuition is covered through teaching assistance works.
