As my degree audit illustrates, I am very focused on the biological and


psychological sciences. I know in advance that I will be needing to work with many
individuals on a personal basis. So understanding the sociology behind their

background, or their habits as per psychology can help me connect with them on a
personal level. The hard sciences such as chemistry and biology will give me a
deeper understanding so that I may treat my patients effectively. Statistics will also
need to be focused on as I will be needing to keep track of many patients. Anatomy
and physiology will be the basis of my expertise.
To elaborate on my course history and why I took those courses, I must first
explain my mindset at the time. When I first entered college, which was actually
during my senior year of high school via the Dual Enrollment program, I was very
unsure of what I wanted to do and for a long time until a certain life changing event
took place. However, I always held an interest in the biological, social, and
psychological sciences. So naturally I gravitated toward the standard biomedical
sciences discipline. Psychology was a joy, as well as biology and sociology.
Chemistry was the defining aspect that I lacked in, dreadfully causing a shift in
majors. Yet as I pursue in my new path today, that of the occupational therapist, I
still utilize the insights gained from that past discipline; particularly the biological,
social, and psychological sciences. Biotechnology piqued my interest at the time,
but unbeknownst to me, it introduced a field I wish to specialize in in the future as a
prosthetics specialist in the therapy field.
My future course load further reflects my predilection towards the biological
and social/psychological sciences, with optimal focus and nothing more or less. As I
begin to consider my graduate studies, and depending what school I wish to apply
to, I know that Human and Physiology will be my prime requisites. This is obvious,
as a thorough understanding of the human body and its functions is crucial to my
chosen profession. Additionally, physics will help me understand the logical motions
of the human body and its parts. Also, my chosen schools also necessitate the
courses of immunology and medical terminology, so I included those on my list.
The psychology/sociology courses reflect my other interests. Thus I chose my minor
to be psychology, and chose courses most relevant to what I may be expected to
know in my profession, such as cognitive psychology so that I may reflect on
potential patients thought processes; developmental psychology (listed under
health sciences for degree requirement) to further elaborate on how children
become adults, and what may go wrong along the way, as well as psychology of
aging to reinforce those insights. I chose social psychology over the behavioral
studies for the sole purpose of modernization, and generalization. The reason being
is because our society is becoming less focused on the individual and shifting
toward the group as we become more diverse in culture, ethnicity, and age group.
Of course these courses are subject to change, but the core values and reasoning
are sound and firm, respectively.
