Research remains vital to the continuation of psychology not only as a science, but also as a practice. Research occurs not only in medical settings, but also on university campuses, including the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Many students are involved in research, not only as researchers themselves, but also as participants or subjects. To assist in coordination of the studies and to access research opportunities, the Department of Psychology uses a computer system called SONA.
Through SONA, as participants, you can identify studies in which you have an interest, and also schedule times to participate in studies that fit your schedules. You must be enrolled in a course that offers credit for research participation in order to register through SONA.
