Psychology Research Laboratories
The University of New Orleans Psychology Department holds a high commitment to innovative research, maintaining several state-of-the-art research laboratories within the department. Laboratories are generally run by a single faculty member, though collaboration between laboratories is extensive. Both graduate and undergraduate students gain extensive hands-on experience in the developmental and/or biological psychology laboratories. We are committed to the responsible conduct of research. Undergraduates who are interested in conducting research should contact the laboratory director.
The department also houses and operates the Psychology Clinic, which was awarded a renovation grant in 2009. In addition to these in-house facilities, the department maintains strong alliances with several mental health agencies throughout the New Orleans metropolitan area. These sites enhance the training of graduate students by serving as applied practicum placements, providing access to applied research projects, and allowing students to develop collaborative relationships that enhance their professional identities.
