Department of Psychological Sciences - Research Labs
Cool projects. Hands-on experiences. Immersion in psychology. Preparation for graduate school and the workplace. Do science!
Involvement in research with a faculty member is one of the best things you can do in your academic career. You will learn about how research is conducted, acquire skills that are valued by employers and graduate schools, and have the satisfaction of knowing you are contributing to science.
Research opportunities are in high demand. Priority is given to Psychological Science majors. Students who are not Psychological Science majors who want to do research in one of our labs need to make an appointment with the Department Chair, Dr. Kelly Madole, to discuss their plans.
