As a psychology major at Calvin, you will have many opportunities on campus to work with professors on cutting-edge research projects.
Every full-time professor in the psychology department is involved in some form of psychology research. Whenever possible, whether through coursework or through paid research fellowships, faculty members involve students in their research.
A number of psychology majors have been awarded McGregor Summer Research Fellowships in recent years, which provides you with a number of opportunities and benefits:
- Spend nine weeks doing full-time research with a professor in the psychology department.
- Receive $3,200 in compensation for your work.
- Enroll in research courses ranging from statistical research to individual research projects.
- You might even present your work at regional and national conferences.
Calvin students are frequently involved in The Michigan Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference (MUPRC), which is a conference that provides a unique opportunity for psychology students to present original research. Student-focused conferences such as MUPRC can be an extremely valuable experience, giving students an audience for their ideas, a way to focus their study results and an opportunity to rehearse public presentations.
