All REU students will enroll in graduate school preparation mini-courses taught late during the summer and into the first semester.
Mini course topics include:

  • The structure of the discipline of psychology.
  • Publishing in peer reviewed journals.
  • Professional Organizations
  • Research Ethics
  • Graduate School Admission Processes
  • Graduate Record Examinations (GRE)
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Graduate School Applications
  • Financial Assistance Opportunities
  • Applications for Research Funding
  • Other issues of professional development that undergrads are unlikely to learn about early in their academic careers

The graduate school preparation courses will help the students to plan advanced education in scientific psychology that best meets their applied and basic psychology interests.
