A Focus on Our Students
Students are encouraged to work with faculty on research. Independent studies and guided research allow students to become part of a faculty member's research. Additionally, students can volunteer at local agencies in order to become exposed to the applied aspects of psychology. Students in the department have served as undergraduate teaching assistants, research assistants and received National Institute of Health (NIH) summer internships in Washington DC. The department offers a biannual conference on social science with other departments at the university that provides students with an opportunity to do poster sessions & make presentations. The department seriously seeks to integrate into its courses a cross-cultural perspective that is unique in the field and provides students with solid preparation for professions in the new century.
