Jane T. Jakoubek
When I started college, I had no idea what my major would be. Some of the topics in the introductory psychology piqued my interest, so signed up for more courses. What intrigues me most is the interaction between people and their environment: how forces outside of us impact us and how we can impact the world around us. I am especially interested in human development and learning--how we learn in class and how we learn in real life. Over time, these interests have led me to explore the psychology of women, learning strategies, community organization, leadership, and the relationship between faith and work. Psychology is a fascinating discipline and touches on so many other facets of life, careers, and the world.
