Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies
Fieldwork in Psychology
Students in this course work one-on-one with a faculty mentor on a project related to the mentor's ongoing research program in a laboratory, clinical, educational, or other setting. Students develop the skills to conduct independent research and undertake an in-depth study in an area of interest. In addition to their work in the laboratory or field, students conduct a literature review related to their project and write a conference-style paper reporting the results of their research. Students arrange for an appropriate placement by contacting the coordinator of the psychology concentration. Students are required to complete 10 hours per week on their fieldwork for 4 credits (5 hours per week for 2 credits) under the supervision of their mentor and meet regularly with the coordinator.
