STEP 1 - Search & Contact Research Labs
If you are a Kent Campus psychology major, take a look at the current list of research labs searching for undergraduate research assistants. Contact labs of interest for more information. Each lab is very different and has a different application process. Most labs are somewhat selective and require at least a 3.0 GPA. Contact each lab of interest for more information.
If you are a Regional Campus student, click here to contact your Academic Advising office at your Regional Campus to learn about possible research experiences they might have available.
If you are a Bachelor of Science (BS) major experiencing difficulty getting accepted into a research lab and your GPA is below a 3.0, you might want to strongly consider switching to the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree program – click here for instructions. BA majors can still complete research experience, it is just not a formal degree requirement (i.e., “Application of Psychological Science Area” on one’s roadmap/GPS) like it is for BS majors.
