Students Present Research During Psychology Conference

Psychology students and professors pictured above participated in the Hudson Valley Undergraduate Psychology Conference .

Students in the Senior Seminar in Psychology class presented their Senior Research Projects during the Hudson Valley Undergraduate Psychology Conference on May 3, 2019, in the Prusmack Center.

Coordinator of Psychology Dr. Kelly Johnson said the students each gave a 15-minute “paper talk” or presentation.  “Public presentations like this help students hone their presentation skills, as well as increase interest in a potentially new topic with people in and outside of Psychology.  Sharing findings in this way is how we develop the field of Psychology,” she said.

Dr. Johnson said the professors primarily evaluated the students on the following: how well the reviewed literature supports their hypothesis; the soundness of the research design; the clarity and accuracy of the results; and the quality of the conclusions. The students were also judged on the quality of their presentation style.
