This writing-intensive course provides an overview of the how's and why's of research in psychology, and it covers such topics as ethics, library research, case studies, observations, surveys and questionnaires, laboratory experiments, APA-style writing, and statistics. It consists of a weekly 75-minute lecture on Monday, in which general ideas about research will be presented, and a weekly 75-minute lab in which research projects will be planned and presented. Over-ride policy: Class size is limited by enrollment in the labs (~20 students each). We maintain no waitlist for the course; please do not ask us for overrides! The course can be added via Wolverine Access if and when students drop the course.

Grades: Final grades are based on exams covering terms and concepts covered in class and written assignments for the lab. We encourage you to write drafts of any and all assignments prior to the due dates. If you wish to avail yourself of this option, you will need to work out a mutually-agreed timetable with your lab instructor well in advance of the due date.

Attendance per se at lab is not graded but is required: A student cannot pass this course without participating in lab activities and exercises.
