Applied Psychology OPUS

Preface

Welcome to the inaugural issue of the NYU Applied Psychology OPUS!

This student-initiated and student-led online publication represents the Applied Psychology Undergraduate Program’s commitment to encourage students to bridge psychological theory with practice in our ever growing multicultural world. The diverse content covered in this inaugural issue reflects the breadth of interests our students have, as well as the strong research skills and hands-on experience they gain through their coursework and field site placements.

I am often amazed by our students’ devotion and commitment to the field of psychology despite their youth. Their dedication and contributions are encapsulated in this first issue. I truly hope you enjoy reading it!
