What Should You Present?
The following are ideally suited for presentation as either a poster or a talk at PsychFest:
- Psychology 303 projects
- Honor's thesis research
- Master's thesis research
- Student/faculty collaborations (e.g., directed study/independent study projects)
Why Should You Present?
PsychFest gives students an opportunity to present their scholarly efforts in a supportive, low-pressure environment and can help students develop public speaking skills necessary to excel in a graduate program or a post-baccalaureate career as well as for practice for a thesis defense.
Who May Submit a Poster or Talk?
Western Washington University students studying psychology or behavioral neuroscience who conducted a project during the current academic year under the supervision of a psychology faculty member may submit a research project to PsychFest.
