Psychology Day 2022

Welcome to Psychology Day - 2022

Our behalf of the psychology department, we would like to invite you to participate in our annual psychology day event. This day represents an opportunity  to learn more about the research and internships our dedicate students and faculty are active in here at Texas State University and to get some practical real-world insight into career possibilities in this field! This event includes a virtual poster competition and two Zoom Webinar sessions (see schedule of events below).

Virtual Research Poster Competition

About this Competition: A poster session is a showcase of the work our undergraduate and graduate students are doing in the Department of Psychology. The work may include research conducted in labs with faculty, to undergraduate honors theses or graduate theses. Posters generally and selectively describe prior work on the topic, the current project’s research questions and hypotheses, methods, results, and implications. This year, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the post session will be held in a virtual format. Students will still be able to create a poster describing their research and it will be uploaded to the psychology department website for public viewing.
