Undergraduate Psychology Major Research Achievements

Undergraduate psychology majors can conduct research through our independent research program working one on one with a faculty supervisor. Our students regularly submit their research for publication and presentation at state, regional, national, and international conferences. The College of Arts and Sciences and the Psychology Department provide financial support to help students defray the costs associated with attending conferences to make presentations. The following is a list of some of our psychology majors' research achievements.
