Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Psychology Conference
MAUPC is an undergraduate psychology conference providing opportunities for undergraduate and associate level students to present research in front of faculty and peers in a non-intimidating, yet professional environment.
The Mid-Atlantic Undergraduate Psychology Conference (MAUPC) is open to all who are interested in the field of psychology. Attendees are able to attend conference workshops, gain knowledge beneficial to their own advancement, and observe research being conducted by their peers. Presenters gain valuable experience in both preparation and research for the conference as well as from presenting. Whether you're an attendee or a presenter, you're sure to leave the conference having accumulated new ideas and a broader perspective of the psychology field.
Dates for MAUPC 2024 will be announced in early 2024.

- Completed research– including rationale based on literature review, hypothesis methods of research, completed research results, analysis, discussion, and references.
Project: Students may submit a proposal to present a project they have completed related to psychology. Proposals should briefly describe the project (non-research related learning). If selected, your project presentation must be 10 minutes with visual aids.
Posters: The number of posters will be limited to 15. If your poster is accepted, you are expected to have your poster on display for the entire day and be available to present/discuss the poster 11:30–11:50 AM.

If your abstract is selected and you confirm the selection, you are expected to register for the conference and present your project(s) in person.
