Merging seminar and workshop formats, students will gain knowledge in advanced topics in research methods, including research ethics, while developing their own supervised independent research project. Students will learn to develop and design a testable research question using standard psychological research methods and to write Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications. Students will “workshop” project ideas in the classroom setting, and gain experience with the “peer review” process. Moreover, students will gain experience with data collection, data entry, and data analysis, as well as report-writing in accordance with APA guidelines and oral presentation of their work.
