Lab Accepting Undergraduate Research Assistants

Anger Words
For undergraduate students in psychology and related fields who are planning to apply to doctoral programs in psychology, obtaining research experience now is highly desirable. The same may be true of some (but not all) master's programs, depending on their focus.

The Anger and Traffic Psychology Lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi is accepting applications from motivated Southern Miss undergraduate students who are interested in obtaining research experience to enhance their applications for graduate school. A new online application has been set up for students interested in joining the lab.

Students planning to apply to graduate programs are encouraged to begin obtaining research experience prior to their senior year so they have sufficient time to see projects through to completion. Interested students may apply at any time of the year but are encouraged to apply prior to the semester in which they hope to begin working in the lab so that their schedule may be considered in selecting a weekly meeting time. Late October through November would be an ideal time to apply to join the lab for the Spring semester.

Priority is given to applicants with cumulative GPAs above 3.0 and who are seeking research experience to benefit their graduate school applications.

Students accepted to the lab may elect to receive course credit through PSY 491 for their work.
