If you are interested in getting involved in research or learning more about topics covered in the lab, consider enriching your experience by joining the lab:

Undergradute Opportunities:

A Practicum in Psychology - Psyc 3801 -3802H, 4801-4802H
Practicum students will be involved in many aspects of research, including identifying testable questions, designing experiments, constructing materials, running tests on participants, and entering, coding, and analyzing data.


A Psychology Honours Thesis - Psyc 4010-4020D
An honours thesis will give you hands-on experience with all aspects of research, including identifying testable questions, designing experiments, constructing materials, running tests on participants, and entering, coding, and analyzing data.
In addition, students may have the opportunity to present their research at a Canadian or international research conference.

Benefits of a practicum or honours thesis:
Carrying-out a research project from start to finish, will give you a much stronger sense of what psychology is as a professional discipline and will enrich your classroom experience by giving you the opportunity to apply your learning.

The skills that you will acquire from a research project will be an asset to your CV, and will help you stand-out to potential employers.

Working in a lab will allow your instructor to get to know you, making it much easier to give you an employment reference.
It will also connect you to the the world of research that lies beyond your classroom.
