Leila Methot

Psychology & Human Resources and Labour Relations

At the University of Lethbridge, you get to choose your path, even if that means changing direction.

For Leila Methot, that meant following her passions to make a switch in her university career.

“When I came to uLethbridge, I wanted to be a psychologist and have my own practice,” she recalls. “That changed after my first year when I was introduced to human resources through my summer job. I went from pursuing psychology to adding human resources and labour relations as my second degree.”

Students at uLetbridge can work on two complimentary university degrees simultaneously through a combined degrees program, allowing her to finish in less time than it would take to complete both degrees individually.

Shifting gears has opened up new avenues for Leila, including her current role as president of the Management Student Society. She credits her co-operative education placements – including stints with retail chain Bootlegger and Lethbridge Family Services – for giving her real-world experience in human resources, along with extensive networking opportunities.

“It’s not all about your grades, or sitting in a classroom, or studying and doing homework; it’s about meeting people and making connections,” she says. “By having the opportunity to be enrolled in courses beyond my field of study, I was able to connect closely with accounting professors, organizational behaviour professors, and many more. My professors have been able to help me grow into opportunities I would not have otherwise been presented with by giving me both professional and personal advice and guidance.”

If education is a journey towards a career, Leila shows that it’s not always a straight line.

“When you come to university, you don’t have to have everything planned out,” she says. “With a liberal education at uLethbridge, you’re able to talk to professors in different disciplines and you really get to understand your interests and your dislikes and what you want to pursue. And it’s ok to change your program to find out what it is you really love.”
