A significant portion of the research conducted by the Psychology department relies on the participation of others. The nature of the work that rests on the participation of the community includes studying language in babies, children and adults, studying judgment and decision-making, studying mechanisms of perception, cognition, attention, and memory, and studying development of social behavior.
Research for Course Credit
Undergraduate students can participate in research for extra credit or as part of their courses through SONA.
Voluntary or Paid Research Participation
Some opportunities to be a paid participant also exist and can be found here.
