Community: Engage with Research

The Department of Psychology is pleased to invite you to take part in our learning environment through research studies and departmental events, all directed by our faculty who are dedicated researchers and experts in their fields of study. We offer opportunities for students and the Denver community to engage with our labs and talk with any one of our many psychology experts, regardless of age or background.

Join us for our Discoveries in Psychological Science Colloquium series which features researchers from the University of Denver, the Front Range region and from around the world, or connect with us about participating in studies on a wide range of matters.


Participate in Research

Our labs are committed to being at the forefront of psychology research and welcome our students and community to take part in our studies. Undergraduate students taking psychology courses can sign up for studies using Sona Systems. Community members interested in taking part in research studies can contact any one of our labs to inquire about our ongoing opportunities.
