Psychology / Research

A hallmark of Meredith’s psychology program is the opportunity undergraduates have to conduct meaningful research directly with faculty or through on-campus programs including the Meredith Autism Program.

Students have multiple opportunities to present their research to peers at professional conferences. A few of the recent conferences that our students have been a part of include:

  • Association for Psychological Science (APS)
  • American Psychological Association (APA)
  • National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)
  • North Carolina Psychological Association (NCPA)

Meredith Autism Program
Psychology students can gain experience in the field by working with the Meredith Autism Program (MAP), which is a one-of-a-kind program that provides full-time treatment services for children with autism. MAP is a specialized early intervention, teaching and behavior modification program for children between 2 and 7 years old who are diagnosed on the autism spectrum and their families. The program provides an intensive behavioral intervention where children with autism can acquire developmentally appropriate skills. This is a unique experience available to few students at the undergraduate level and is considered one of the highlights of our program.
