PBS in need of human subjects to take part in studies

Our department has a reputation for excellence in research which is further strengthened by our participants from the student body and the general public. 

This valuable service also elicits benefits to our students. Students can experience first hand what it's like to be a human subject and learn about how psychological data is gathered. Students also have opportunities to work inside labs as research assistants as well as pursue their own research projects as part of a lab or special course.

Your help makes all of this possible—enriching our student experience and boosting our research capabilities.
