Wilnise Destin Career Development in Psychology This study is focused on different career paths in psychology and graduate school determination factors. The research includes learning about the various directions to take with a BS psychology degree and possible job options. Interviewing psychologists, staff members, and alumni at Gwynedd Mercy University will help in the process of selecting which direction I want to take after graduating. Wilnise Destin & Benjamin Marzuco Empathic Perspective This study examines the empathic perspective of college students. It will assess whether students are more likely to empathize with individuals with complex behaviors if the individual is the same gender as the student. The researchers hypothesize same-gendered people will empathize more than with the opposite gender, even in cases where individuals are engaging in antisocial behavior. 22
