Psychology Undergraduate Mentor Program

This program was created by the Graduate Student Organization in the Psychology Department as a way to foster connection between graduate and undergraduate students focusing their studies in Psychology.

The Psychology Undergraduate Mentoring Program pairs undergraduate students with graduate students to provide non-academic guidance in the field of Psychology. Topics can include:
  • Career Exploration in Psychology
  • Specializations in Psychology
  • How to apply to graduate school
  • How to apply for a research assistant position
  • How to network
  • Information on professional conferences and organizations

Mentors and mentees are paired on their area of interest, their time in the program (newer graduate students are placed with freshmen/sophomore undergraduate students), and can decide the time commitment and meeting style that works best for them.

Current undergraduate students who are interested in applying as a mentee can download the application and submit it in person to the Psychology Advising Office in Social Science 399B, or via email to psyadvof@albany.edu.

Current graduate students who are interested in becoming a mentor can contact ualbany.psych.rgso@gmail.com.
