The Department of Psychology Undergraduate Research Forum is an opportunity for undergraduate students to showcase their research in the field of psychology.

Last year, at the Department of Psychology's 20th Annual Undergraduate Research Colloquium, 14 student researchers presented their research in the form of an academic poster session. All psychology students who are involved in research projects are invited to present their research at this colloquium. This includes research projects such as Psychology Theses, Honors Theses, independent research projects, Psychology 4998 experiences, and course research projects (e.g., Psych 4520). 

Students had the option of having their posters and presentations judged. The judges are lecturers and graduate students from the Department of Psychology. Amazon gift cards were awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners as prizes.
