My goal is to do what every American citizen should aim for. I want to protect my country. I plan to achieve this goal by gaining a post-secondary education at Morgan State University with a degree in Psychology. This degree will enable me to become an employee at an intelligence agency where I can meet my long term goal of being an analyst. The general job of an intelligence analyst is to watch trends in their country or countries in relations with it to evaluate and predict upcoming events. If these events will have a significant impact, especially if threatening, they are reported so that action may be taken. . For years, members of the intelligence organizations have been using central intelligence to protect the United States from criminals and harmful attacks. Psychologists working for this agency help train and assist with the capturing of these threats by profiling criminals so that attacks can be prevented and threats eliminated. It would give me great joy to help the country I live in stay safe, and out of harm’s way. My degree in psychology will enable me to watch trends based on behavior (behavioral psychology). While in college, I plan to take the initiative to apply for internships at accepting organizations so that I am able to gain experience and become a potential marketable employee.
