Psychology Summer Research Institute

2019 Summer Research Institute in Psychology: Stereotypes, Prejudice, & Discrimination

This week-long research-intensive experience will run from May 20-24, 2019. Students will gain foundational skills in research focused on stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. Students will receive hands-on experience with research in these areas through a variety of supervised activities, including but not limited to demonstrations of subtle prejudice, the implicit associations test, and how potential job candidates are discriminated against. The students will collect and analyze data using several different research methodologies, including experiments. They will be required to share their research in a poster session open to the campus community. During the week of the Summer Research Institute, students will spend approximately 30 hours of supervised research activities and additional time in preparation for the following day. Students will receive a $200 stipend and a copy of books that are useful in Psychology classes. Support from a peer mentor will also be provided.
