The psychology program provides opportunities for students to develop their skills, learn about available resources, and take advantage of individualized attention in a variety of ways.
- Advanced Training Opportunities—Students get hands-on training through work experiences. They take the types of testing and measurement classes that are usually offered only in graduate programs.
- Graduate School Preparation—Students have the opportunity to attend professor-led workshops on the various components of graduate school processes and opportunities.
- Faculty Relationships—Students will get to know their professors, and they get to know their students. Professors have students over for a fall welcome picnic, encourage them along the way, and host a dinner in the students' honor when they graduate. They help with resumes, job searches, and maybe even pull a prank or two!
- Professional Development Opportunities—Students attend at least six professional development events throughout the program designed to expose them to the many facets of the field of psychology. Those events include a spring lecture series, an APA Writing Style Workshop, and attending the Siouxland Undergraduate Research Conference.
