Explain your career path

As I worked through the practicums I realized that I really enjoyed home visiting and working with families which is why I decided to become a home visitor and eventually do a masters program to become a marriage and family therapist.

What was your major at Southeast and how would you characterize the quality of that program to prospective students?

My major was Family Studies and I would say it’s a high quality program. It offers practicum and internships which helps its students develop skills and interests in future careers while also helping us build our resume so it is easier to get a job when we graduate. Also the professors in our department are amazing! They are so supportive and go above and beyond to help us achieve our goals!
