  • 2-3 credits offered per semester 
  • I am hoping to create a lab in which more senior members are given leadership roles and assist in the training of newer students. That doesn't mean I will automatically turn away a senior, though! If you have a passion for social psychology and research, please do not hesitate to contact me! 
  • I do my recruitment for research assistants in advance of the start of the semester.
