Work alongside our faculty to conduct groundbreaking research projects, allowing you to gain valuable research, writing, and presentation experience.
Complete research with our faculty
Our faculty members are active members of the psychology community and conduct cutting-edge research, regularly presenting their results at professional conferences and through publications. At Mercer University, we give you the opportunity to work alongside our faculty during research projects, allowing you to gain valuable research, writing, and presentation skills. You will see how academics, scientists, and other professionals exchange ideas with one another and communicate research findings. As an undergraduate student participating in group faculty research, you will have the opportunity to author or co-author articles and present findings at conferences. This experience is crucial when applying to graduate programs in psychology.
Independent research opportunities
Mercer University provides you with opportunities to complete an independent, original research project as an undergraduate student. Our curriculum is dedicated to developing new knowledge in psychology, and undergraduates enjoy experiential learning opportunities to contribute to the field. These projects hone your skills in research, writing, and critical thinking.
