The department offers experiences to undergraduate and graduate students through more than 30 active research programs and clinical experiences provided in partnership with dozens of USU and community partners, as well as numerous school districts.
Psychology department faculty actively collaborate with students on a variety of research projects including parenting interventions, interventions for individuals with anxiety disorders, impulsivity, Alzheimer's disease, child cognition, and more.
