Undergrads -- Become a research assistant!

Dr. Judith Dygdon is seeking undergraduate research assistants to help in data collection with human participants and data entry into a computer database. 

She and her doctoral students have various research projects underway.  All projects deal with the application of learning theory to human behavior. 
Examples of some topics currently under investigation are: 

·      Factors that influence how people learn to identify things as good and bad;
·      The effect of ballroom dance training on loneliness and self esteem;
·      The nature of fear of flying.  

This work is based at the downtown campus, though some travel to remote sites (e.g., local elementary schools) is involved.

What's in it for you? 

·      Participation in a friendly and collaborative research team;
·      Great research experience;
·      A letter of reference that will reflect the nature, quality, and quantity of your work.

Given the nature of this work, preference will be given to students who have completed PSYC 216 or PSYC 316. 

To apply, contact Dr. Dygdon by email at
