The purpose of Project Outreach is to have students learn about themselves and about psychology by becoming involved in community settings. As all sections of Project Outreach – Psychology 211 are for 3 credits, graded, the academic requirements for the course are uniform across all sections and include four hours of fieldwork placement, one hour of discussion section, and one hour of lecture each week. Attendance at your section is mandatory. Readings, a mid-term project, and a class exam will be assigned. The Graduate Student Instructor may state additional section requirements in class.

As an Outreach student you will be engaged in real work in the community, designed to meet community needs. You will have a chance to explore careers and significant social issues. You will be involved with a small group of students, led by an undergraduate under the supervision of a graduate student, and faculty member who will guide you through the learning cycle and make your experience educational and enjoyable.

If you have questions, please stop by the Project Outreach office in 1343 East Hall or call the office at 734.764.2580, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

NOTE: Psychology 211 – Project Outreach counts as an experiential lab for the Psychology major. Psychology 211 cannot be used toward the Biopsychology, Cognition and Neuroscience (BCN) major.
