Student Research in Psychology: Information

Research is the capstone of each psychology major's experience at Knox. During the senior year, each individual student conducts his or her own research project in an area of personal interest. The project culminates with an extensive research paper and a public presentation of the work in either a poster session or an oral presentation. Each year, Knox psychology students present their work outside of Knox to audiences at conferences devoted to undergraduate research such as ILLOWA, a conference for students at colleges and universities in Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri. The quality of Knox student research is so high that it is frequently published in peer-reviewed journals or presented at professional conferences usually reserved for PhD level psychologists and graduate students.
