Introducing Morgan Lowe
Morgan Lowe entered the Counseling Psychology Master's Program in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi in the Fall of 2017, and we were happy to welcome her to the Anger and Traffic Psychology Lab.
Morgan grew up in Madison, Mississippi and completed her undergraduate work in psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi. During her time as an undergraduate, she worked in the Personality Assessment and Clinical Outcomes (PACO) Lab. This work led to a poster presentation at the Undergraduate Symposium on Research and Creative Activity on the Five Factor Model of personality and treatment preference.
When asked about what drew her to the Counseling Psychology Master's Program, Morgan said she liked the program atmosphere and the people involved in the program. She also noted that she liked the program's emphasis on diversity and the flexibility of the program (i.e., students receive training that prepares them to pursue a variety of different career and/or academic pathways).
When it comes to research, Morgan's interests include dark personality traits, forensic psychology, and juvenile offenders. Morgan’s aims to pursue a doctorate in counseling psychology and hopes to work with adolescents and/or juvenile offender populations. During her free time, Morgan’s hobbies include hanging out with friends, enjoying time with her dog, and singing.
When asked about what advice she would offer to potential applicants, Morgan said that it is important to start the process of preparing for graduate school applications as early as possible to make sure one meets all the deadlines. Good advice!
