We believe that students cannot learn about psychological research without opportunities to experience all aspects of the research process from participation to design and analysis. Student volunteers can serve as participants in research studies and may have opportunities to assist faculty with their research. There also are opportunities to present and publish research with department faculty members.
Research Assistant Opportunities
Many university graduate programs require students to have experience in conducting psychological research, as well as in analyzing data and writing up the results. To find out more about possible research assistant opportunities, students should see listings of available research assistant opportunities for students, visit faculty research lab websites, and/or consult with individual full-time faculty members.
Summer Research Internship Opportunities
Many universities offer summer research opportunities, including this one at the University of Maryland.
