Criminology, psychology students showcase research, internships

During their junior year, students majoring in one of the behavioral sciences are required to complete an independent research project or an internship. On Sunday, 18 juniors and seniors – all of whom are majoring or double majoring in Criminology and Psychology – presented the results of their work at the 9th Behavioral Sciences Showcase at The Chandelier in downtown Tiffin.
