How I`m Getting There

I would like to go to Duke University. It`s in Durham, North Carolina.

Duke University has the program I`m looking for, even if it is sort of far from my family.

I will need a masters degree, a doctorate in psychology (Ph.D), or a Doctor of psychology (Psy.D)

Duke is about $1,271 per credit hour.

I hope I qualify for any academic scolarship.
