Student-Faculty Research

The psychology faculty at Berry College are actively involved in a variety of research topics. An important aspect of our mission is to provide students with hands-on experience in designing, carrying out and presenting research findings conducted at the college. As such, we encourage student scholarship in the form of sponsored independent research, co-authored papers and presentation of research findings at local, regional and national meetings. Below are representative publications and presentations involving current and former Berry College students (in bold).
