Why research in Psych 125?

Research is integral to Psychological Science. As such, we believe that participating in research is an important part of your educational experience in Psychology 125. All students registered for Psych 125 will be asked to participate in 2 hours of departmentally approved research for course credit. Through your participation, you will learn about a variety of areas in psychology, the questions that researchers ask, and how research is conducted in order to answer those questions. You may even find yourself inspired to conduct psychological research of your own during your undergraduate career.

The purpose of the Subject Pool is threefold:

  1. Expose students to Psychological research, demonstrate the empirical side of the discipline, and enhance their experience in the course
  2. Inspire research interests early and connect students to subjects, courses, and faculty that can nurture and focus those interests
  3. Provide the means for Psychology faculty and students to engage in meaningful and powerful research to enhance coursework, professional development, and dissemination of research findings

Please note that the pool is only available to St. Olaf Psychology Department faculty and current St. Olaf Psychology students.
