Course Credit Subject Pool

The Psychology Course Credit Subject Pool gives students who are taking particular Psychology courses the opportunity to participate in experiments outside of the classroom. (Not all Psychology courses provide this opportunity. Ask your instructor about your course.) Participating in the Psychology Course Credit Subject Pool is meant to be an educational experience during which students will learn about how psychological research is conducted. All studies are in accordance with the ethical procedures established by the University Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the Psychology Department's Human Subjects Committee.

This page contains information and a variety of other helpful resources for both students and researchers involved in the Psychology Course Credit Subject Pool. Questions may be directed to the Subject Pool Coordinator or your Psychology course instructor.
