In addition to training individuals to provide care and treatment for those with psychological problems, the college is equally committed to engaging in sophisticated research, both basic and applied. Our faculty and students conduct scientific research across an exceptionally broad array of topics, consistent with the diverse academic backgrounds, theoretical orientations, and specializations of our faculty. Students will find ample opportunities to conduct original scientific research, either in collaboration with or under the supervision of our distinguished faculty members.
Research in the center is supported by extensive computer facilities, including mainframe, workstation, and microcomputer environments. Methodological, statistical, and computer consultation is available to faculty members and students engaged in research or related course work.
The center adheres to published professional and governmental guidelines and regulations for protecting human subjects in research. Any research that involves human subjects conducted by NSU faculty members, staff, or students, whether funded or unfunded, must be submitted to the CPS representative for decision about possible IRB review. Policies and procedures can be accessed at the IRB Web site.
