Directed Studies is typically by invitation only to students who have already volunteered in the lab for at least one term. However, we occasionally make exceptions for students with prior experience in other research labs and who have strong writing skills.
If you are interested in Directed Studies but have not previously volunteered in the Social Health Lab, please:
1) indicate your interest in Directed Studies on your application form
2) include on your CV/resume at least one reference who can comment on your prior research lab experience
3) include an academic writing sample with your application (for example, a research report or final paper completed for a course such as PSYC217, PSYC260 or PSYC366).
