Research

Fundamental to Psychology is research in the behavioral sciences.  Many psychologists investigate aspects of the biopsychosocial model of human behavior.  In order to gain an understanding of the science of Psychology, students are strongly encouraged to participate in research activities, in laboratory or “real-world” settings.  Undergraduate students can complete an Undergraduate Research Assistantship (PSYC 3806) and/or Honors Thesis (PSYC 4690).  They are also eligible to participate in summer enrichment programs through Research Experiences in Undergraduate Institutions  (REU) that are supported by the National Science Foundation. Graduate students are expected to conduct research and to complete empirically-based theses and dissertations.  Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to co-author articles in scientific journals and to present at research conferences.
