Psychology Research Experience Program

The Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) offers you the opportunity to earn course credit towards your grade by participating in psychology research studies. The program was developed for two reasons:

  • Professors and graduate students do more than teach courses. They conduct research studies, and rely on students, such as yourselves, to take part in those studies.
  • It is a great way for students to experience what it’s like to be a participant in research studies, to learn about how research is carried out, and earn some marks towards the course at the same time.

If your course includes a PREP component, check your course syllabus to see what percentage of your grade you can earn, and whether this is a required part of the course or if it counts as an optional bonus credit.

The deadline to participate in studies for PREP is the official last day of class for the term, December 6, 2023 We recommend that you get started early – don’t leave it to the end of term or you may miss out on opportunities.
