Scott Mossman ’16
B.S. Social Science: Psychology
“I work for an outpatient mental health center in St. Joseph, Missouri as a caseworker and behavioral counselor. I appreciated the internship courses I took through Rogers State University. One was at a mental health center very similar to where I work now and the experience gave me an understanding of what my job would look like going in. RSU was the perfect fit for me to finally finish my degree.”
Option: Environmental Studies
