LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 8, 2019) – If you need an example of how a broad-based college education can open up your mind to new challenges and opportunities, look no farther than University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences Professor of Psychology Suzanne Segerstrom.

Segerstrom majored in music as an undergraduate and initially thought she would make a career in the field. She took an elective course in psychology and enjoyed it so much she took another, then another. Her curiosity developed into a passion and she decided to go to graduate school and focus on psychology. The rest, as they say, is history.

On this week’s episode of “Behind the Blue,” UKPR‘s Carl Nathe talks with Segerstrom about how she became part of the UK faculty and what excites her so much about her research and teaching.
