Everything taught in the department fits together, especially when augmented with the experiences the professors share, so the more knowledge acquired the more all the courses integrate and become increasingly more interesting and useful. I have been very pleased with all aspects of the Psychology program here at Concordia. The Professors are active, don't express a bias or pass off opinion as fact, are well versed in all areas, and are willing to work with students to promote their success. As a transfer I have seen a wide variety of classrooms, teachers, and programs, and few have the cohesiveness and learning conducive environment I have found here at Concordia.

I am convinced that the behavioral science program will open many doors for me to minister to and serve the surrounding communities, and other communities in the future.

I had a very good exposure to the Behavioral Science department during my first year. Dr. Flores de Apodaca is a very interesting and amazing professor; he not only teaches a class, he keeps the student interested in the class and we receive first hand exposure to the career. I am interested in psychiatry, and his classes have helped me in discovering that I am truly interested in this field.

My favorite Psychology Professor is Prof. Benda, because she is young and connects very well with her students and incorporates her work and experience into her teachings and classes everyday.

Concordia's small classes give you the opportunities to not only understand the material better, but in case of a question you have the opportunity to ask the professors themselves to explain more thoroughly. All the professors at Concordia practice their field besides just teaching, which in the long run can help you be exposed to which ever career field you are interested.

The professor who has inspired me the most in the Psychology department is Dr. R. Flores de Apodaca. He was my professor for Intro to Psych, and other courses. His enthusiasm and teaching techniques made me intrigued by the way people have different perspectives of life, and how they come to these perspectives. Also, he teaches with the knowledge of the real working world. He mixes the cases and teachings well, which makes learning more interesting, and note the fact that he is also a down to earth, chill professor.

My favorite psychology professor is Dr. Mendez. Dr. Mendez has a way of teaching that seems to captivate the entire room. He makes the class and material so much more interesting and fun. He is the reason I want to pursue a career in psychology.
