This course provides students with foundational knowledge and skills required to conduct valid research in psychology and other social sciences. Students will learn how to formulate a research study, prepare a proposal, and identify the ethical guidelines for research with human subjects. Approaches to measurement of behavior and experience, analysis and interpretation of results, and preparation of a written report of findings will be included. Three hours per week will be devoted to lecture/class presentation, and one hour per week will be spent in guided small group work on development and implementation of a research project.
