PSYC 344 - Experimental Psychology


3 Credit(s)
An introduction to experimental methods and techniques, emphasizing specific applications in psychology. This course reviews experimental research design, methods, analysis, and presentation/dissemination of findings. Students read & analyze primary research articles in a topic area, engage in a hands-on class research project, prepare oral and written presentations of research results, and present their work at a local behavioral research conference. Thus students will be actively engaged in each step of the research process. In addition, during the semester students research, design, prepare and present their own independent research proposals, including obtaining Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval for the proposed research. Sample topic areas include memory, attention, addiction, language, social behavior, or human emotions.
