Students and faculty work together in the research labs to explore the frontiers of psychological knowledge. Students can participate as volunteers, work as paid research assistants, or arrange for independent study credit. To participate as a research assistant or to inquire about an independent study, please contact the lab director. To be a participant, please see Research Participation below.
Students are encouraged to participate in research being conducted in the Psychology department.
