Course Description

Psy 458 provides advanced psychology students with an opportunity to carry out an empirical research project of their own devising, either individually or working with a small group of like-minded colleagues. The target audience is students who would like to explore psychology as an applied practice (rather than as a factual knowledge base) through hands-on exploration and interaction with others students and the instructors.

There will be some direct instruction to help you improve your knowledge of statistics and research methods, but the majority of the work will be individualized and self-directed (though supervised). The research project will follow the

Grading Policy

The majority of the grade will come from writing assignments of varying length, specificity, and formality. There will also be two or three statistics and research design tests that will focus on understanding and interpretation rather than computational accuracy.
