Psychological Science Students Present at Eastern Psychological Association Meeting

Psychological Science faculty members Dr. Lynn Jones, Dr. William Bailey, Dr. Lonnie Yandell and Dr. Pete Giordano, along with 14 psychology majors attended the annual meeting of the Eastern Psychological Association in Pittsburgh, Pa. on March 1-4.  All of the Belmont students who attended the conference presented research posters along with their faculty sponsors.

One of the highlights of the trip for the faculty was attending an invited talk by a former Belmont psychology major, Dr. Dan Corts, who graduated in the early ’90s and presented a talk titled “Scientific Literacy:  A Central Goal of Undergraduate Education.”  Corts is professor of psychology at Augustana College and recently published a textbook with Pearson Publishing titled Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy.
