We are Michelle and Mike, two doctoral students studying psychology at North Dakota State University. We are studying health and social psychology, so the majority of our posts will be on issues relating to topics in these fields. The purpose of this blog is to take a look at some of the topics and issues in psychology and explain why it matters, not just to the field of psychology but to everybody. We will be posting articles every Friday morning. The topics we will be covering include theories in psychology, experimental methods, issues in the field, with an occasional article intended to give tips on graduate school. Our goal is to make this knowledge easily accessible to anyone reading.
