Students are strongly encouraged to become involved in research at Concordia University Chicago. Students often have their first taste of psychological science as research participants in General Psychology. As a result of their participation, students regularly comment that they are better able to grasp aspects of research, design, and statistics, and that the experience complements their reading and classroom learning. Some students remark that they enjoy helping classmates and faculty conduct research projects.
