Undergraduate Research Day

Every year, projects carried out by psychology undergraduate students culminate in a day-long research event, with poster sessions, talks, and a reception. Faculty, students, and Psychology staff come together to celebrate the hard work and excellence in ongoing undergraduate research at McGill.

This year, the ongoing pandemic kept us from celebrating this event in person, but we wanted to recognize the commitment, passion, strength, and hard work of our undergraduates through a "virtual poster board" in order to highlight their outstanding achievements. While this year’s celebration is different in delivery, the spirit and pride we convey remains the same!
