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.
