Department of Psychology Sneak Peek Program

The Psychology Sneak Peek is a great opportunity for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds considering a PhD in psychology to attend a preview weekend at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL!  

Participating students will have the opportunity to visit Northwestern’s Department of Psychology, interact with faculty members and graduate students, and meet peers interested in pursuing graduate education in psychology.  

Due to the ongoing pandemic,the 2021 Sneak Peek Program will be held remotely on June 11th. Participating students will still have a chance to get the Northwestern and graduate school experience through conversations with our esteemed faculty and graduate students, research talks, question-and-answer sessions about the application process, and much more!
