Undergraduate Education at the Child Study Center

Undergraduate Education at the Child Study Center

Undergraduate students have the opportunity to become involved in research at the Child Study Center in a number of different ways: from running studies, allowing them to get experience with face-to-face interaction with children and families, to working with data (e.g. coding and working with databases), analyzing and writing up research results, and presenting CSC work to a professional audience. When undergraduates work on collaborative research teams, they witness all aspects of the scientific process as it goes on around them in a laboratory setting, and they form relationships with experienced researchers to help propel their careers. Psychology undergraduates who work in the labs of CSC faculty are eligible for funds for research presentations and travel. Please contact Nancy English nec101@psu.edu for further information.

I want to help individuals adapt to and actively engage with clinically-relevant processes that reflect, in part, the broader characteristics of their environment/community.
