Research Opportunities
Psychology students follow a progression of research courses that prepare them to design research, analyze data and discuss findings. For example, some students have examined perfectionism, optical illusions and optimism. Beyond this required course of study, there are a number of options that students can pursue individually. They may choose to be part of a small research group led by a departmental professor. One such group implemented educational programs related to health psychology in the Rockford public school system. Students may also elect to develop individual projects on their own. These various projects often result in poster and paper presentations at conferences.

As a founding member of the Tri-State Undergraduate Research Conference, Rockford University has showcased our students since 1992. Also, our students have presented at the Midwestern Psychological Association annual conference in Chicago.
