RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES AND SUMMER JOBS

Honor Courses and Tutorials

  • The first step is for the student to secure a Psychology instructor who will be willing to supervise his/her work (this step must be done during the semester preceding the one in which the student actually enrolls in the course).
  • He/she should do preliminary library work to obtain a background on the tutorial topic proposed.
  • The student and instructor must then agree on an outline of the work to be done.
  • The student must then get a tutorial form from the Psychology Department Office. This procedure, which is also required for Honors Tutorials, must be completed before the formal registration period.

Department Colloquia

Both the faculty and the Graduate Student Association sponsor colloquia, which you are welcome to attend. At departmental colloquia or meetings, psychologists, often from other institutions, are invited to discuss their current research. Announcements of colloquia are posted here. Some of these lectures will seem rather advanced, but watch for titles that interest you. If you are unsure about the topic covered by a lecture, ask an instructor about it. These colloquia will introduce you to the variety of research problems which interest psychologists and perhaps convey to you a more personal sense of what it feels like to be engaged in intensive research.
