Points of Pride
Himani Khatri, Psychology
“I’m doing undergraduate research with Dr. Nickell and we presented at the Northern Lights conference in the fall and the Red River Psychology Conference that was held at Concordia.”“MSUM has a child development lab and a physiology lab. There are professors that do various research with students. It’s a great opportunity and a great way to gain experience in the research area.”
Jennifer Wenner, Psychology
“I really like the program. All of the professors I’ve had are very knowledgeable about the classes they teach. I feel like I’ve learned a lot from all of them even though they have very different teaching styles.”“Putting lab data together for conferences reinforces the statistics that I learned. Also, going through the proposal process to get my own research started was helpful because we're doing the same thing for a class I'm in. Doing research is a good way to look into various areas and get a feel for what that particular area of psychology looks at.”
