  6. 6. Reflection <ul><li>Reflection on My Education </li></ul><ul><li>As may be evidenced at this point, I am a considerably older student than most who are in this BA of Psychology program at Argosy. This life experience brings a depth of personal and professional exposure that younger students may not have, and it also brings its share of challenges. I have crashed through some boundaries in terms of stretching my brain power and tackled some assignments and courses I had great trepidation in engaging. Then there is the physiology of being an older student – I haven’t had this little sleep in many, many years. </li></ul><ul><li>I spent a long time in account and senior management in corporate advertising and marketing service environments. Consequently, I have had extensive exposure to interpersonal, oral and written communication. These were, and continue to be my strengths. I have learned, however, through my studies at Argosy to be mindful of document length requirements as well as making sure that objectives of assignments are individually and responsibly met. </li></ul><ul><li>Interestingly, the most challenging courses were not specifically geared to psychology but were requirements of the degree. These were the algebra and statistics classes. Research projects were also challenging – but very fulfilling. Exposure to general research and projects requiring research methodology were great academic learning experiences. Review of Codes of Ethics for both the American Counseling Association and the American Psychological Association were valuable as I prepare for a career in counseling. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  7. 7. I enjoyed the classroom experience and while I understand the interests of the University in creating online programs, the lack of face-to-face interaction with the instructor and other classmates is missed. The classroom enriches the diversity experience as well. I learned and relearned psychological theories and about those who authored and influenced them. This is the heart of my passion in this field, and I feel I have developed significantly in my critical thinking about psychological issues. I emerge from Argosy University well-prepared for graduate school. Reflection Page Two
