A strong tradition of student achievement in research
Many students collaborate with faculty on research projects or develop and complete their own research projects with the help of faculty mentors. Each year, Oglethorpe is represented at regional and national psychology conferences by psychology students presenting their original work. A dedicated Psychology lab provides Psychology and Biopsychology students with the tools and resources needed for their original research.
One recent example of Biopsychology research in action comes from Livia Balaban ’12. Livia successfully completed and defended an honor’s thesis on the cognitive and linguistic skill of adolescents who had experienced a traumatic brain injury. This research was presented at a large, internationally attended professional conference; the Association for Speech, Language, and Hearing Research.
