My views on the university are generally positive. I think the one of it’s most outstanding qualities is how modern and well maintained all of the facilities are: the library, gym, cafeteria (and generally any other area or classroom) is just a pleasure to be in. Everything works just as you’d expect it to and has a pleasing aesthetically quality to it.
Regarding the academic side of things – It was a bit to broad and general for my liking. I spent 4 years in the psychology bachelors program and we only got into the true “meat” of the course (work in the psych. lab, hands-on experience consulting, a more in-depth look at the various models of clinical psychology) at the tail end of years 3-4. I can imagine that could be really disappointing to someone who’s not really sure whether or not psychology is the field of study they actually want to commit to. By the time you actually get to experience first hand what a psychologist duties include it may already be to late to switch to another area. Although I felt I got a pretty well rounded education in general and had the pleasure of attending lectures by some very passionate and knowledgeable professors (most notably – genetics, philosophy and developmental psychology) I didn’t feel I had received enough hands-on experience with the multitude of things a psychologist can do in an actual day to day work scenario.
If you’re dead set on being a working psychologist – I don’t feel this place is right for you. If you however want a terrific yet somewhat generic and broad “college experience” MRU is definitely the place. Campus is super raw, people are great and it’s generally a very fun place to be.
