Throughout my high school career, I had a great variety of classes ranging from Civil Engineering and Architecture to Anatomy and Physiology. I was, and still am, interested in just about everything. At the University of North Dakota, I chose to pursue an Interdisciplinary Studies Degree with an emphasis in Health Science and a Minor in Biology. This allowed me to tailor my schedule to include courses I needed as well as courses I was interested in. As evident in my transcripts, I took a little bit of everything and I loved every moment of it. Although I wasn’t yet focusing on a certain career path, I was certain that I wanted to ultimately pursue a career in the medical field. Specifically, I have recently found that chiropractic will allow me to enrich the lives of others while exhibiting lifelong learning
As I began college, I decided not to choose a major at first. It was not until the beginning of this semester that I declared Biology as my major. I have always been interested in science, and it has always been one of my best subjects. Since I was little, my dream has been to become a doctor. As I have taken more classes, trying to weed out what I do and do not like, I have discovered that sciences are what interest me the most. Currently I have an emphasis in pre-professional studies which means that my major is leading me to attend a medical school after I graduate from Arkansas State University.
Currently, I am in the process of earning my Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a pre-medical emphasis from Grand Canyon University. Upon graduation, I hope to attend either a medical or physician assistant school. My specific goal in the medical field is still up in the air, however, I am avidly exploring the fields of pathology, oncology, emergency medicine, and surgery. My interest in the medical field was sparked by my human anatomy and physiology class during my senior year of high school. Put simply, my life in high school was rough, and I was completely lost, as far as my career decisions were concerned. I enrolled in a human anatomy course, to fill a hole in my schedule during my senior
I have been consumed with the difficult decision prior to the start of this semester between my choice of majors and have unfortunately come to the incorrect conclusion. After attending class, interacting with peers in my classes it has become apparent that changing my major to Nutrition and Dietetics from apparel is clearly more suited for my career path. While I'm very interested in fashion my true passion and overall lifestyle is more consistent in the Nutritional and dietetics disciplines. Since graduating from high school I have become deeply committed to body sculpting which requires not only a strict work out program but also a strict dietary regiment designed by professionals. I live by example experiencing first hand the benefits and importance of appropriate nutrition and the
My passion lies in sports medicine, leading me to major in athletic training. I love how athletic training, unlike most health professions, focuses on the most effective aspect of healthcare, prevention. The program involves a rigorous academic program that is paired with an excellent clinical program that allows me to work with athletes every day. It is fascinating to learn about the latest techniques and technologies used to treat athletes. Prerequisites to physical therapy school conveniently involve many of the science courses that would help me achieve a biology degree at UNL, so I have also declared a major in
College is a time where many decide the path the wish to take for the future. Many either declare their major or enter undeclared, wanting to explore the choices laid out for them. I am one of them. While I do have an interest in the medical field, I am not exactly sure as to if I am interested enough to actually major in it. I want to keep my options open. With money being an issue for many, including myself, I decided to go in as undeclared because I want to make sure the major I picked will be something I will be passionate about and love. As I go in undeclared, I will use it as a learning experience and join a variety of clubs and classes to broaden my interests. Liking a subject is one thing, but actually majoring and getting a job in
A college major is one of the most crucial and influential decisions a person will make in his or her lifetime. This important choice has the power to determine what a person will do for the rest of their life. Students across the country are challenged by this task each and every year because they are not able to find a path of study that is compatible with their ideal career and favorable interests. Traditional majors are known for providing broad educations and producing well-rounded students that are ready and able to work in various jobs. However, today it is challenging to break into the work force. Students with more specific studies are finding greater success in their job search after college. For this reason, individualized
Choosing biology chemistry and maths at A level has allowed me to study these subject more thoroughly and improve my understanding greatly. My interest in these courses at A level proved that I wish to continue with biology and chemistry into further education.
A brief overview of the history of moral psychology in the Kohlbergian tradition is necessary to understand the significance and need for the current proposal. Jean Piaget presented his construct of moral reasoning in his theory of development, and he found there were two stages of moral reasoning—heterenomous and autonomous. The former is associated with Piaget’s concrete operational stage as moral reasoning is dependent upon the relational context of the child and authority figures (parents, God, etc.) and is inductive by nature. The latter is
When people would ask me “what I wanted to be when I grew up”, I never had a definite answer. I wanted to do something different than my friends, something that I could be passionate about, and something that I loved. In eighth grade, once I started going to the gym, I would also measure my food and watch what I would eat. It was just a habit that I had developed growing up with hypothyroidism. Freshman year was when I realized that I wanted to get in the health field, specifically with nutrition. Nutrition is something that’s always stuck with me ever since being diagnosed with my disorder. From the beginning to the end of high school my passion for nutrition and wanted to help others. Before I knew it, I was researching colleges that had Nutrition as a major and contacting those schools asking them what I could do as a Nutrition major. That’s when I realized I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I strive to be a Dietitian for children with hypothyroidism or diabetes. I want to be able to take my experience of struggling with hypothyroidism and be able to incorporate it to help
Coming to Rutgers University I knew that my major interest would be in Exercise Science and Medicine. One of the reasons I wanted to major in Exercise Science was because of my intentions to become a Physical Therapist. The course work of the Exercise Science programs entails a strong understanding of functional human anatomy, kinesiology, and human physiology, which are all relevant coursework for Physical Therapy school. One major benefit of this major is the senior internship that all students have to find in order to graduate with a B.S. Secondly, another major that interests me but is underrepresented is Nutrition. Ever since I started being conscious about my health and what foods are essential, I found nutritional science profoundly interesting. Nutrition encompasses strong background knowledge in biochemical, physiological, and behavioral processes. This major gives students many marketable opportunities in medicine, dietetics, and clinical research. Finally, the third major that I would consider is Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. This major encompasses many principles of the biological systems as well as supplementing knowledge from Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The spectrum of careers and applications of this major include research in biotechnology and genetic engineering.
I first started out as a Pre-Med major/Biology with a minor in both Chemistry and Math. Then I decided I was going to be a Math major however when I got to Trigonometry I was in over my head. But, as time progressed I figured out that this was not the path for me. So, when I transferred universities I decided to change my major to Nursing. However, I was not satisfied with this path as well. I was still struggling with what I wanted to major in and had no one to turn to for help. I decided I would try to be an English major but that did not work out either. I also tried Social Work but I would not have been able to finish the degree
The High school years are full of great experiences, but also the next step into your future as an adult and what you’re going to become. For myself, I’ve always had a passion for fitness and health. I have settled on my career choice and would like to major in fitness physiology, along with a minor in dietitian/nutritionist, so I can combine meal plans or nutritional advice with working out. This profession had me convinced that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It involves helping people through health and fitness, and also rehabilitation through physical activity. It has all the elements of what I love to do, in helping people and training them. Dietitian/nutritionist is something I also had an interest aside from
In October 2014, I was selected to work in partnership with Dean Andrews and JHU’s School of Education in leading the development of a personalized learning platform for use at Henderson-Hopkins Community School in East Baltimore. As a school specifically designed and built to foster personalized learning, one of the main challenges observed at Henderson-Hopkins and one that the nation’s education system as a whole faces, is to leverage the learning sciences and modern technologies to develop engaging, authentic, and personalized learning experiences (Rosen, & Beck-Hill, 2012).
Lawrence Kohlberg’s stage theory of moral reasoning is an elaboration and refinement of Piaget’s theory. This is evident in his three levels of Pre-conventional, Conventional and Postconventional moral reasoning’s and his six stages of moral judgment. In stage 1 children obey to avoid punishment followed by stage 2 where they look out for themselves but are aware of others peoples interests. Stage 3 has children cooperating with peers and considering their feelings. In stage 4 they believe that laws must be followed and individual rights and ethical principles are prevalent. Kohlberg suggests in stage five that people see the laws a necessary to persevere the basic rights and liberty. In conclusion stage six portrays the individual’s ethical principles, values, and the equality of human rights (Slavin & Schunk, 2018, p.56). Kohlberg believed that children should learn moral principles through moral dilemmas.
