I actually decided to attend GCU for my doctorate before I chose what I wanted to study. I felt the signs of the universe were pointing me to this school. So, when it was time to decide what degree I wanted to pursue, I followed the question I kept asking myself since receiving my multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis, 什么是我一直想做却从未做过的? I was that kid that fell in love with Freud and the psychoanalysis concept. So, I chose to earn my Doctor of Philosophy in General 心理学, which I also knew I could use in my current career as a professor of English composition. It would even allow me to study the other things I loved like gamified learning. 就像所有的星星都排成一行!

Dr. Keziah Tinkle-Williams, Doctor of Philosophy in General 心理学, Class of 2021
