Program Overview

In this program, students will be introduced to the field of psychology, including basic psychological principles, overarching theories, psychological disorders, and simple research design. Lessons are designed to foster an interactive environment in which students can apply knowledge through hands-on activities. In particular, students will engage in a week-long project where they have the opportunity to collect data, conduct statistical analyses using Jamovi software, and present their findings to classmates. Students will also have the chance to meet and learn from current Illinois Tech graduate students and faculty with unique specialties to experience a variety of diverse career options.
