Our department offers numerous opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students
to conduct and present research and gain experience in a research lab.
Research at All Levels
A graduate degree is often research-intensive and our opportunities for graduate research are extensive. Because we're part of a large university even our undergraduates also
have many opportunities for research. Why now? Early research experience makes your
applications to graduate school more attractive, you can learn more about your favorite
topics and build relationships with professors, graduate students, and mentors, and
you'll have hands-on experience, before you even have a degree. Undergraduate research
can also be done for academic credit, and you may even have the chance to present
Our research foci include:
Social, emotional, behavioral and health functioning of children and adolescents
Cognitive neuroscience of attention, language, memory, emotion and cognition
Psychological development, etiology, prevention, and treatment in communities, family
and school contexts
