Psychology Research Methods
Professor Janet McDonald Department of Psychology
This is the first class in a four semester sequence designed to enable you to write an upper division honors thesis in psychology. You must take this course in order to do an honors thesis in psychology. The course covers the methods used in psychological research, teaches you critical thinking skills for research by reading and critiquing psychology journal articles, allows you to design, run and analyze a small research study that the class does together, and requires an APA style research proposal in an area of your choosing.
Requirements: Psychology major; 3.5 GPA; Junior level standing, or 4 semesters left until graduation (i.e., you plan to graduate in Spring 2017)
