Research for Department of Psychology

Our Faculty & Their Research

Faculty members are happy to involve undergraduate students in their research projects, using state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, often collaborating with other departments, community members and employers on research projects.

That gives you the opportunity to get additional hands-on experience. Senior undergraduate students may have the unique opportunity to work with faculty and graduate students in research labs to get an up-close and personal view of Psychology in action. In addition to on-campus research facilities, Psychology researchers have carried out studies in South Africa, Japan, Samoa, Bonaire and China, often with the help of student assistants.
