The Health Psychology Research Lab offers the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to become actively involved in all phases of research investigating health psychology topics without the cost of tuition or obligations of a for-credit course.
What's going on with the Health Psychology Research Lab?
The lab is currently on hiatus, but is scheduled to re-open in the Fall (2012)!
Where are the meetings?
The Health Psychology Research Lab will meet in Rm 112 (Bldg.41).
What if I want to participate in the coming Fall semester?
Just contact Dr. Walch (474–2273 or firstname.lastname@example.org ) to see about opportunities for future participation or even participation from a “distance”
Do I have to make a huge commitment?
Of course not! The Health Psychology Research Lab is designed for YOUR benefit. It is open for you to participate as much or as little as you can. We appreciate all the help we can get, even an hour or two a week or helping finish a project. You be the judge!
What are the benefits of participating?
If you are planning to pursue a graduate degree in psychology, undergrad research experience makes one of the most powerful statements on your graduate application or resume. Besides, the Health Psychology Research Lab is FUN as well as EDUCATIONAL!
I have a topic of interest that I would like to research, could I pursue it at the Health Psychology Research Lab?
It's possible! Bring your ideas and we will help you as much as we can.
I’m not very experienced with research; I don’t even know how to work SPSS!
Don’t worry! This is meant to be a learning experience. We are here to help you, even if all you need is just a little extra practice. The Health Psychology Research Lab is designed for the advanced AND novice researcher. Come on and join the fun! Remember, you are not getting graded for your efforts!
Are there any publishing opportunities for me?
Absolutely! As with any research experience, there are always publication opportunities (and that will look very nice on your graduate application or resume).
Are there any prerequisite requirements?
No, just come as you are, and we will teach you everything you need to know. Remember, this is a lab designed for the novice and advanced researcher. You can be an undergraduate or graduate student. ALL ARE WELCOME!
