As a person who has always been interested in Psychology, Vicki’s academic studies were integral to her current career path. Yet the real-world applications of her classes weren’t immediately clear. She says that Co-op helped clarify her trajectory: the program helps students figure out “how the knowledge you gain from school can be applied in a work setting.”
