This lab course will familiarize students with the process of research in personality psychology.

By the end of the course, students will learn how to write a full scientific research report and develop their ability to 1) identify research gaps and generate innovative research questions, 2) test research hypotheses by designing an empirical research study, and 3) disseminate research findings through written and oral presentations.

This is a writing-intensive course and students will be expected to improve their writing over the duration of the course by submitting multiple drafts of papers, incorporating feedback into their writing, and providing thoughtful feedback through peer review of other students' papers. Students will submit four APA style research papers including a research proposal, introduction/method paper, results/discussion paper, and a polished final research paper.

Only one textbook is required for this course and one manual is recommended to further aid students

Class Format:

The course will involve in-class lectures and individualized instruction during class time. Students will also need to dedicate time outside of class to complete group assignments and collaborate with other students
