Participating in research studies is a great – and often fun – way to gain hands-on experience with psychology research studies. These studies are run by our professors and graduate students, who conduct research aimed at furthering a wide variety of scientific missions. They are all safe and fully approved by our university's Research Ethics Board, and provide an optimal way to learn how psychological research is conducted. Study participation is often an optional component of Introductory Psychology (PSYC 1000U), as well as some other 2nd-year psychology courses. The SONA system allows students to sign up and participate in these various research studies, with your log in information being emailed to you during the first week of class, when applicable.
