From the CIA to the Classroom

Professor Colleen McDonough is back at Neumann after working for the CIA for two years. At the agency, she was working on a team that compiled psychological assessments of world leaders.

She returned in January as the director of the MS in Forensic Psychology program, which she describes as the intersection of psychology, criminal justice, and law. “I felt like my work at the CIA perfectly positioned me for this job,” she says.
