Psychology Summer Program

Monday, June 25 – Friday, June 29, 2018

High School Summer Program

This summer the Department of Psychology is offering "Psychology in Everyday Life" to introduce high school students to the field of psychology. Over the course of the week, students will be given a rich learning experience and the opportunity to apply ideas and research in psychology to everyday life.

Lectures and Discussions

Students will learn about different principles and theories from both Illinois Tech faculty and graduate students. Students will also use the knowledge they gain to conduct their own research by collecting data and presenting their findings. There will be field trips throughout the week to make observations and apply what they have learned in to real life situations.
