Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Students are encouraged to pursue research in collaboration with faculty members in order to develop their skills and gain experience. Psychology faculty members are involved in research in the areas of personality, cognitive, industrial/organizational, social, developmental and clinical psychology. As a result of these collaborative experiences with faculty members, undergraduate students have co-authored at state, regional, and national professional conventions. Professors are also actively engaged in projects aiming to solve local, national, and international social problems. Students are invited to get hands-on experience under faculty supervision in a variety of community settings.

Beyond their formal course work, undergraduate majors are encouraged to take part in ongoing faculty research projects, departmental colloquia, and service learning in community settings. 


An active psychology club, Psi Chi, and a colloquium series featuring distinguished speakers round out the excellent and varied opportunities for undergraduate psychology majors.
