The California State University San Marcos Psychology Department, the CSUSM Chapter of Psi Chi, and the CSUSM Psychology Student Organization invite you to attend and submit your work to the Annual Psychology Student Research Conference. Students from any college or university are welcome to attend and participate!

This is a great opportunity for students to learn about research, graduate school, and career opportunities, build their CV/resume, and have fun all at the same time.

All events will include:

  • A keynote address by Dr. Lacie Barber, Associate Professor of Psychology at San Diego State University
  • A career panel
  • A graduate school panel
  • Student posters sessions and brief (blitz) talks

Luncheon Information

There will be a luncheon for those interested! The luncheon is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with poster/talk presenters, other students, and faculty. A limited number of box lunches are available for advance purchase ($15), but you can also bring your own lunch to the luncheon. Box lunches will include a pre-selected variety (e.g., sandwhiches, wraps, and salads, with vegan and vegetarian options included). To purchase a box lunch, please visit: 2024 CSUSM Psychology Student Research Conference Luncheon.
Ticket purchases are required for box lunches only; if you plan to bring your own lunch, you do not need to purchase a ticket to attend the luncheon.


If you are planning to drive and park at CSUSM, the main Parking Garage (labeled "CSUSM Parking Garage" in Google Maps) is probably your best bet. When you arrive at the parking garage, there will be signs posted so that you can digitally purchase a pass (currently $9 for the day, but there may be hourly rates as well). You can go here for more information about parking:
