What is Psychology?

There are many misconceptions about the field of psychology. Undergraduate director Erinn Green clears the air by explaining, “Psychology is one of those disciplines where people think that you are going to graduate and be a psychologist, right? It doesn’t really work like that. It is a really diverse field, and people trained in psychology do lots of other things than being a psychologist.”

Student group brings global health competition to UC 

October 19, 2022

A group of UC students is competing in the second Global Health Case Competition at the University of Cincinnati, with the hope of advancing to compete internationally. As participants in the challenge, the students bring scholarship from multiple academic disciplines—among them political science, medical sciences, neuroscience, English, chemical and environmental engineering and more—to find innovative solutions to global health crises. The competition first came to UC’s campus in 2021, led by Sanath Chandramouli, a fourth-year student in the College of Arts and Sciences double majoring in political science and neuroscience. Chandramouli was inspired to participate in the Global Health Competition founded at Atlanta’s Emory University.
