Research Resources

Social Sciences Research Group

The Social Sciences Research Group was formed to promote student understanding of research processes. Students have the opportunity to work with their colleagues in small groups in order to be actively involved in creating, planning, and carrying out independent research projects under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Student projects may culminate in a presentation at an appropriate conference.

Serving as a Research Assistant

Individual faculty members often have projects with which students can be involved in collecting data or other aspects of the research process. If you are interested in working with an individual faculty member, please review the information on the faculty web pages to identify a faculty member with interests similar to yours. Then, contact the faculty member directly to inquire about opportunities.

Institutional Review Board

The Department of Behavioral Sciences at Northwest Missouri State University upholds ethical practices in completing research. Research projects that you plan to present at a conference or publish need to be approved by the Northwest Missouri State University Institutional Review Board. The link below will take you to the page for this committee.
