Our research match maker program has been created to help students find research opportunities that best fit their interests. The tabs attached to this page contain the details about projects and their focus area in psychology. The research opportunities are sorted by their focus in: child/adolescent, community, health, industrial/organization, social, and external. The postings within each tab will allow you to view current opportunity to work with psychology faculty or graduate students in their research labs.
It is possible to earn course credit for working on research teams. It is also possible to fulfill your junior year experiential learning (JYEL) requirement by working on research.
This is how you take the next step…
- Learn more about our faculty before you contact them at: http://csh.depaul.edu/departments/psychology/faculty-and-staff/Pages/default.aspx .
- It is often best to first complete our psychology core classes ( PSY 240 Statistics, PSY 241 Research I and PSY 242 Research II) prior to applying for a position.
- These may be for volunteer or course credit. The research supervisor will provide more information.
- Typically professors will request that you participate for several quarters after you are trained in the lab techniques.
If you are approved for credit, the next step is to fill out an independent study application.
