Research in Psychology
The Psychology Program encourages students to actively participate in faculty-sponsored research. An important factor in gaining admission to graduate programs in psychology is demonstrating an active interest in research.
Every year, St. Thomas University hosts the Undergraduate Research Symposium in which students present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. In addition, this event is an opportunity for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students and faculty from all academic disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a broad range of exciting research topics. The Symposium is also a celebration of students’ ability to utilize classroom knowledge to gain understanding of the world and affect change in the community, and the world at large.
Psychology students at St. Thomas University also have the opportunity to attend and present research at national conferences throughout the country. This allows students the opportunity to discuss their research with faculty and students from major research institutions.
