For Students

Do you want to learn more about psychedelic research?

See below for a list of academic programs that may support psychedelic research as well as resources for hosting a MAPS-related event on your campus.

We encourage students to join or start a chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). SSDP is the leading student organization working to reform drug laws and to educate each other and society on the realities of drugs. An SSDP chapter is a good platform for hosting a MAPS–related event on campus.

We recommend that psychology students familiarize themselves with the field of Transpersonal Psychology, since psychedelic therapy contributed to the founding of this field.

For students of chemistry, biology, and other physical sciences, medicinal chemist David Nichols, Ph.D., provides insight below.
