I am passionate about both psychology and design which fuels my interest in the field of marketing. In my free time I love going to the beach, practicing yoga, drinking excessive amounts of coffee, and befriending stranger's dogs.

    Psychological and Brain Sciences Major

    The Psychological and Brain Sciences major at UC Santa Barbara focuses on the scientific study of behavior. Over the past four years, I have studied several branches of psychology and developed a good foundation in experimental methods. Learning about how people perceive information and allow it to guide their behavior has been the most beneficial part of the major.
