Independent Study Program

  • The Independent Study Program is an opportunity to earn course credit by working on a research project with a faculty member in Psychology. This experience not only sharpens your research skills, it also provides valuable faculty mentorship.
  • Students interested in independent study should  view the research areas for Psychology faculty to decide which faculty members they would like to work with, then contact each faculty member directly
  • Students may also visit the Independent Study Recruitment page for a listing of available independent study sections.
