Research Methods II

In this course, students refine and extend the knowledge and skills relating to reading and evaluating empirical psychology articles; research methods, design, and ethics; professional writing; and APA Style. The major assignment is a comprehensive research project that requires students to identify an area for research, conduct a literature review, design and implement a research study, analyze data, and prepare a final research paper and presentation. Throughout the semester, students receive instructor or student feedback on drafts of written work and their progress in completing other project requirements. Prerequisite: PSYC 230.
