Psychological Sciences investigates human development, mentoring roles, organizational structures, therapy techniques, and the connections of the mind to behavior. Research experience begins early where students gain exposure to experiments and serve as participants in actual research projects conducted by faculty and graduate students they not only learn about good experimental design and data analysis techniques, but also put this knowledge to practice by designing their own experiments, collecting and analyzing the data, and preparing research poster presentations for a research event that we conduct each semester. The curriculum prepares students for encountering, evaluating, and interrelating research findings in relation to topical areas covered in our upper-division content courses.
