Mentored Independent Research

Fall and Spring Semester

The unique and intensive experiential learning doing research in one our psychological science laboratories, provides Honors Psychology Program students with an exceptional opportunity rarely accessible in the context of study abroad programs. Students are matched, based on their interests, with a faculty mentor, and then conduct supervised research in her/his laboratory. In the context of this mentored independent research, students are typically integrated into an existing research project, or, together with their Faculty Advisor, develop a novel independent project. In addition to completing the mandatory hours (10 hours = 3 credits, 15 hours = 4 credits), students are required to write a final paper summarizing their work.

The research project is a required course for Psychology Track students and is open to IPPS Honors Program students only.
