Are you a Psychology student? Are you comfortable with Mathematics/Statistics? Are you interested in the “data” side of Psychology (e.g., psychometrics, statistical models)? Are you considering attending graduate schoool? If you answered yes to all of these questions then this session is for you!
The first Undergraduate Student Recruitment Event was held on October 22, 2021 and attracted approximately 25 students from across Canada who are interested in studying Quantitative Methods for Psychology in graduate school. There were 13 faculty members and 4 graduate students who came out to discuss their programs and answer questions from the undergraduate students. There were representatives from the University of British Columbia, University of Alberta, University of Manitoba, York University, Carleton University, and McGill University.
The event was divided into three parts:
- Faculty and Graduate Student representatives discussed the nature of graduate studies in Quantitative Methods for Psychology, including preparation, courses, projects, career opportunities, etc.
- Q&A – students had the opportunity to ask questions of the Quantitative Methods faculty members and graduate students
- Students had the opportunity to visit breakout rooms with the representatives from each of the Universities/Programs, as well as a breakout room with graduate students specializing in Quantitative Methods for Psychology
If you are an undergraduate student interested in attending such an event in fall 2022 please send an email to Rob Cribbie (email@example.com). If there is sufficient interest we will hold the event again.
