PSYC 5200 & Student Presentations

The seminars are open to any interested faculty, staff, and students. However, BNS graduate students are required to take 4 semesters of seminar (PSYC 5200) for credit. The major goal of the course is to give students a chance to practice presenting and get feedback on their research. Senior graduate students and advanced/honors undergraduates working in BNS/PNB labs may also register.
