FOR STUDENTS WITH INTERESTS IN CHILD AND FAMILY CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, TRAUMA, OR RACIAL/ETHNIC & ECONOMIC DISPARITIES
Looking for research experience? We periodically have openings for UCONN undergrads looking to gain research experience to join our lab. Getting involved in research while you are an undergraduate can help you learn more about career options, gain experience to be more competitive in graduate school applications, establish work relationships and skills that may help with other types of post-college jobs, and establish closer relationships with faculty and graduate students that can serve as later references.
Students typically register for PSYC 3889 and stay in the lab for one academic year. You can use 3 credits of PSYC 3889 for your Psych Plan of Study, and up to 9 hours towards your 120 total credit requirements. You can learn more about how PSYC 3889 in the undergraduate section on the website for the Department of Psychological Sciences.
Within our lab, RAs participate in various aspects of our studies, including designing studies, programming surveys, recruitment, running experiments, coding interviews or videotaped interactions, data entry and analysis, and presenting results. Several of the undergraduates in our lab have presented at conferences and collaborated on publications during their time in our lab.
