Student Research Opportunities

You will have the chance to be a part of psychological research as an undergraduate. All of our faculty have their doctorates and have published research in refereed journals. We work closely with the students as junior colleagues, mirroring the mentorships of graduate programs. Our students also regularly present research at national, state, and regional conferences. These are the kinds of experience that gets you noticed by graduate schools and employers. You can obtain your research experience by volunteering or you can enroll in Psych 4981-9 to get class credit while conducting research.
