I would like to attend Stanford university because it is known to be one of the world's best universities in the country that has one of the most greatest psychology programs than any  other university in northern California. I have chosen the field of psychology because I would love to study the mind, I would like to make a difference if not in the world, at least in a persons life.

Psychologist focus on human behavior, observing, and interrupting what different behaviors mean.  To become a psychologist you typically need  a master’s degree or doctorate degree. Practicing  to become a psychologists you  also need a license or certification through the American Board of Professional Psychology. Becoming a psychologists isn't all fun in games they have to understand and explain thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Depending on the topic of study. Psychologist use techniques such as observation, assessment, and experimentation to develop the theories and beliefs that influence  a persons mind and actions. I believe the program at Stanford university will peprare me for a wide array of careers.
