Psychology Major and "4+1" Student, Brian Brooks
Today’s Friday Focus will be spotlighting senior psychology major, Brian Brooks. Brian is local to the Cleveland area and came to CSU through the Mandel Continuing Scholar’s Program via Tri-C. Brian is also a bit of a trailblazer in the department, as he is the first ever student to enroll in the Psychological Science 4+1 Program. Brian has been an active member of both the Mood and Emotion Regulation (MER) and Aging, Cognition, and Emotion (ACE) Labs during the past few years. Brian is currently completing is undergraduate honor’s thesis examining the role of stress on biased recall when remembering details of a criminal event. He will continue pursuing this line of inquiry while completing his MA degree in the Psychological Science Program next year. Ultimately, Brian hopes to parlay his experiences at CSU to gain admission into a PhD program in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Forensic Psychology. Outside of his studies, Brian is passionate about social justice and volunteering with the Red Cross.
