Research and Projects

The psychology department at Mercyhurst is dedicated to helping students prepare for future professions and graduate study by making various research opportunities available. As part of the research methods sequence, students design and conduct independent research projects and present their research at the Western Pennsylvania Undergraduate Conference. Student projects and collaborative work with faculty have been presented at other regional and national conferences, such as the Association for Psychological Science annual convention. Psychology majors also have the option of completing a senior research project. In addition, faculty typically maintain active research programs which students are welcome to join.
