OPUS Mission Statement

NYU Applied Psychology OPUS (Online Publication of Undergraduate Studies) is a semi-annual showcase of 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.

OPUS History

OPUS History: *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. Initially a semi-annual publication, the founding editors and their staff members produced three issues between the Spring 2010 and Spring 2011 semesters. Since then, the OPUS staff has expanded to include Junior staff apprentices and featured writers for the blog Personal Statement.

OPUS has been honored with a President's Service Award for our promotion of learning, leadership, and quality of student life at NYU.
