Each year in mid-April, the Department of Psychological Science holds a poster session in which undergraduate and graduate students present their research. The event is open to students of all majors who have completed or partially completed any behavioral science research project in which they took an active role. Such projects include independent research conducted under faculty supervision, collaborative work done with a professor, honors theses, master’s theses, and independent research that fulfilled a course assignment. Students can present finalized projects, preliminary data, or predicted results. The event is informal with a friendly atmosphere, and tasty snacks are served. The next poster session will be held Thursday, April 18, 2013 in the World Languages and Cultures Lab, NQ 160.
Why should you participate?
Register by April 4, 2013 so that we can print name tags and certificates and so that all projects will be included in the program. The instruction booklet includes a registration form.
Questions? Contact the program organizer: Dr. Kerri Pickel.
