Graduate Degree At The University Of Waterloo

Decent Essays
The overarching goal I have for pursuing a degree in Industrial/Organizational psychology is to gain experience from specific areas of research in the I/O psychology field. I have had the opportunity to take part in the research of this field throughout my undergraduate degree but have not been able to explore it as in depth as I could through a graduate degree. Completing a Master 's of Applied Science in I/O psychology at the University of Waterloo will allow me to reach this goal as I know that research is an integral part of the program. As such, my current interest in career choices are focused on the teaching and research aspects of being a professor. My recent experience as an Honours Thesis student has demonstrated my passion for research and teaching as I have had the opportunity to conduct my own research and present it in order to teach my classmates about my thesis topic. My previous experience in research has demonstrated that I have the ambition to pursue graduate studies in order to reach my career aspiration. I know that a Master 's of Applied Science in I/O psychology at the University of Waterloo will guide and challenge me to achieve my long-term goal. Throughout my Master 's degree my objective is to work with people and conduct impactful research. I enjoy collaborating and learning from others which will allow for personal development and well-rounded learning. I also aspire to work with people who share the same passion as I do in I/O psychology.
