In one of my first undergraduate psychology courses, my professor required 10 hours of participation in psychology research. Participation opportunities were generally posted outside of the psychology classroom and usually involved serving as a subject in survey-based studies for graduate students and faculty members. If you've never participated in psychology research at your university, take a little time to find out what is available and sign up for at least one study. Serving as a research participant is a valuable experience for any psychology major, whether or not you plan to specialize in research.

There are also plenty of opportunities to participate in online studies. If you want to sign up for a psychology study or are recruiting participants for your own research, be sure to check out the psychology forums. I discovered another great study site via Twitter - IRB Approved Study Share. According to the site description, "IRB Approved Study Share is a comprehensive location for faculty, researchers and graduate students with human subjects review board (i.e. IRB) approved projects to post recruitment information about their surveys, interviews, and focus groups."
