Individualized Research Internships at Metropolitan State

     These are arranged individually between student and faculty member.  These internships are NOT listed in the course schedule.
      If interested, approach a faculty member with an idea about an area of research that you would like to pursue. Students should
      complete PSYC 312 Research Methods as a prerequisite.  The student arranges an agreement regarding a suitable research
      project and assessment criteria, then registration is done through a Student-Designed Independent Study (SDIS).
      Students may approach any faculty member -- the individuals listed below have worked with students in the past.

Graduate Student Research Internships or Thesis Projects
      Students in the Psychology M.A. Program  carry out thesis projects under the supervision of resident and/or community faculty members.
      In addition, students may do a research-based internship (if desired).  Details are available from the M.A. Program Coordinator.

Do you have completed research or research in progresss?  Share your Results with others!  
      A key part of the research process is sharing (or disseminating) your results -- research is not useful unless others find out about it.
      There are opportunities for students  to present or publish their research
 (click here for link).  
      Few students disseminate research findings, so doing so can make one a competeitve applicant in the graduate school and employment markets.
