Research Participation System
The Department’s Research Participation System (RPS) is an online system for managing research studies involving Psychology-student participants. Faculty and student researchers benefit from the RPS by gaining access to a large pool of student participants. Student participants acquire important experiential learning opportunities from the RPS and learn firsthand about research in psychology in exchange for course credit.

The Faculty Coordinator for the RPS System is Mark Holden.

Graduate students are a critical component of our active research environment. At both the masters and PhD level, they work as collaborators and colleagues with their supervisor and other members of their research lab(s). This leads to a series of vibrant research communities within the Department.

We have a policy that all graduate students be funded, with scholarships and/or teaching/research assistantships available for everyone in the program. Funding levels are among the best in the country.
