In Experimental Psychology students design basic research studies using simulations which allow manipulation of up to four parameters, to design and participate in studies of perception and cognition, including designs in which they have manipulated up to two parameters. Students in PSYC212 also analyze existing real-life data sets, using descriptive and inferential techniques.

 

PSYC498 PSYC499 Senior Research I and II – Required for majors

In Senior Research I students develop a research prospectus (including an in-depth literature review, research hypotheses, methodology, planned statistical analyses, projected results, and potential implications) which will be the basis of their senior research project in Senior Research II. In Senior Research II , students actually carry out their studies, collecting, analyzing and interpreting their data, and then communicating their results to others in the department.
