B.A. INDS: Rehabilitation in Persons with Limb Loss
- Dr. Raimi Quiton, Psychology
- Dr. Sarah Leupen, Biology
- Carrie Sauter, Individualized Study
I chose to major in INDS because it allowed me to combine my interests across disciplines into the unique study of amputees. Originally, my interest in becoming a prosthetist left a wide array of options for me when choosing my undergraduate degree. However, when I was introduced to the INDS program, it seemed like the perfect fit and allowed me to have a niche in my undergraduate study. After changing career paths from a prosthetist to an Occupational Therapist, INDS allowed flexibility in my coursework at UMBC. I got pick each individual course for a specific reason, whether it was a prerequisite for a graduate program, or just an interest that would further my knowledge in my area of interest.
What are your plans for after graduation, and how do you see using your INDS degree?
I was recently accepted into my top choice Occupational Therapy doctorate program at Notre Dame of Maryland. I will be starting this program in August 2022. INDS has prepared me greatly for this, as I will graduate from UMBC with research experience that will prepare me for my future capstone in my graduate program.
