Psychology Research at UMW

At Mary Washington, we pride ourselves on the research that students and faculty conduct together.  Our faculty are world-renowned scholars of psychological topics like parenting, gender studies, trauma, animal learning, academic integrity, and many more.

Our students have made presentations at national and international conferences and publish papers in scientific journals.  Below is a slide show of some research posters presented by UMW faculty, students, and alumni.

Students conduct their own research in courses like Research Methods and Research Seminars, and all students have the opportunity to join research teams through the URES and Independent Research programs. The list below shows the broad range of topics that UMW scholars have investigated.
