Students in the Behavioral Science Department have opportunities to engage in original research, either individually or in collaboration with faculty.
Students have presented research at conferences such as the American Psychological Society, the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association, the Pacific Sociological Association, and the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. Students can also submit their paper(s) to be published in the Behavioral Science Department Undergraduate Journal. These experiences add a valuable component to undergraduate education.
Students have the opportunity of receiving up to 6 credits toward their degree for research work. If you are interested in doing this you need to find a faculty member to work with on research, either having you help them with their current research or having the faculty member mentor you on a project of your choosing. The Independent Study Contract needs to be created and have all the appropriate signatures of approval to have the course set up. The paperwork is due to your academic advisor on April 11th for the summer 2011 semester and on August 1st for the fall 2011 semester. Your advisor will provide you with the contract required and help you register for the course. Please contact your advisor directly for more information.
