Online BA in Applied Psychology

A group of four adults are sitting in a professional-looking setting. They are wearing casual professional clothes. The back of two women's heads are visible, one brunette white woman who is shaking the hand of an African-American man's hand across the small circle of collagues. To her right, a woman of mixed ethnicity with light brown skin and long black hair looks toward the white woman and leans forward smiling at the handshake.
