Applied Psychology OPUS

About OPUS

OPUS Mission Statement

NYU Applied Psychology OPUS (Online Publication of Undergraduate Studies) is a bi-annual showcase of undergraduate student work in psychology. OPUS was created to encourage and showcase the exemplary work of NYU undergraduate students in psychology. As an online publication, OPUS is designed to allow students to reach a wider audience with their work, simultaneously creating the potential for dialogue both within and beyond NYU. OPUS strives to build a community of excellence for undergraduates who are not only studying psychology from a textbook, but becoming actively engaged by asking questions and applying their knowledge of a cultured psychology to their world.

History of OPUS

OPUS was founded in the fall of 2009 by Vanessa Victoria Volpe, Jackson Taylor, and Sibyl Holland during their time as undergraduate students in the Department of Applied Psychology. In the years following, OPUS developed into a bi-annual publication. OPUS continues to be led each year by a team of Editors-in-Chief, who supervise Staff and Contributing Writers to produce a new issue every Fall and Spring.
