PsychFest Submission Information

What Should You Present?

The following are ideally suited for presentation as either a poster or a talk at PsychFest:

  • Psychology 303 projects
  • Honor's thesis research
  • Master's thesis research
  • Student/faculty collaborations (e.g., directed study/independent study projects)

Why Should You Present?

PsychFest gives students an opportunity to present their scholarly efforts in a supportive, low-pressure environment and can help students develop public speaking skills necessary to excel in a graduate program or a post-baccalaureate career as well as for practice for a thesis defense.

Who May Submit a Poster or Talk?

Western Washington University students studying psychology or behavioral neuroscience who conducted a project during the current academic year under the supervision of a psychology faculty member may submit a research project to PsychFest.
