Research Methods in Psychology
This is an intensive course designed to help the student develop
a firm foundation in research methods and statistical analysis.
It provides a broad conceptual framework and a set of skills that
together support critical thinking in upper-level psychology courses.
The course covers a range of methodological approaches (e.g., experimentation,
systematic observation, and survey) and statistical procedures (e.g.,
chi square, correlation, t-tests, and analysis of variance) common
in psychology. It includes substantial laboratory, computer, and
writing components. This course should be taken as the second course
in the department for all students planning to major in psychology.
