She cares more about Educational Quality than the average student.

Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
The Psychology Program at CAL is massive in size making it a very impersonal experience. Even in upper division courses, the average class size is close to 300, making professors very hard to get a hold of. Most of the teaching is actually done by GSI's (graduate student instructors) Professors dont read papers, grade tests or involve themselves on the actual innerworkings of the class. Most of the staff is focused on their research, so if you're interested in research more than class learning than this program may still work for you. If you're the type of student who prefers one on one attention and smaller class sizes, I wouldnt recommend UC Berkeley Psych.
