Volunteer vs. Independent Study Credit
As a volunteer, you can gain invaluable professional experience in a clinical and professional research environment.
Working for independent study credit can add more value to your volunteer work by getting class credit hours towards your major for working with us in the lab. You may earn up to 6 credit hours in independent study as an undergraduate student.
- Running human subjects
- Coordinating appointments
- Entering study data
- De-identifying data
- Performing literature reviews
- Attending bi-weekly meetings
- Must commit to working at least six hours per week
- Must commit to working a minimum of two consecutive semesters
- Applicants are expected to have a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and be willing to participate in all assigned lab tasks
- Psychology GPA above 3.0—preference given to those with a GPA above 3.5
- Though GPA is extremely important, we believe that a number does not define you, and it will not necessarily disqualify your application
- Preference is given to students who have previously taken and successfully completed Psychology Research Methods I & II
If you are interested in working with us, please gather your resume/CV, include your GPA, your ideal weekly and long-term commitment as well as one paragraph that describes your interests in research and why you are interested in working with our lab.
