Never Stop Exploring

We continually expand our hands-on research.

In and out of the classroom, UW-Green Bay forges ahead to create more research opportunities so our students get real-world experience. You can seek research assistantships, roles in our labs and independent studies. You'll also conduct research in classes, with group and individual research projects as part of our curriculum. Some students even do PSI Talks, a TED talk style presentation where they get to present their research experience.

Students Drive Our Research

Earn the opportunity to work in traditional lab research.

In our Child’s Lab, student researchers collaborate with faculty mentors to study children’s social, cognitive and brain development to find new truths in the field. Our PANE Lab focuses on creating new pain medications and finding new antidepressants. Our neuroscience lab explores morality and empathy in the brain. In these labs, you can explore and change the field of psychology even before you graduate.
