Sona Systems

Sona Systems is an online system the Psychology Department at the University of St. Thomas uses to manage and schedule Psychology Department research projects.  This system will enable student researchers to enter their research experiment, solicit participants from the student participant pool and schedule appointments.  Any student enrolled as a participant in the "participant pool" is able to view current student research experiments and schedule appointments to participate in these experiments.

Any questions, please contact Julie Jepma at or 651-962-5030.
