Jacqueline Eddy graduated in Spring 2017 with a B.A. in Multidisciplinary Studies (Areas of Concentration: Education and Psychology). Currently, Jacqueline is a third-year doctoral student in UNLV’s School Psychology program.

“The Multidisciplinary Studies degree equipped me with the foundational knowledge necessary to understand the educational and psychological needs of students and their families. Additionally, my final capstone project gave me the confidence to pursue research at the graduate level and prepared me to embrace a scientist-practitioner model. I would recommend a Multidisciplinary Studies degree to students who want to gain an understanding of how to approach problems from an interdisciplinary lens.”
