Undergraduate research is typically the first step students take if they are interested in choosing psychology as a profession. Besides allowing them to establish a strong working relationship with a faculty member in their field of interest, undergraduate research teaches students how to communicate their results, both through publishing in peer-reviewed journals and by making formal presentations at the School of Arts & Sciences’ annual Student Symposium and at national and international conferences.
