PSYCH 205-CN : Research Methods in Psychology


Description

The main goal of this course is to build students' foundational skills as consumers and producers of research involving human behavior. As consumers of research, students will learn how to systematically evaluate the validity of different claims that students might encounter in a future psychology textbook, a psychology research article, or the media. As producers of research, students will learn how to generate hypotheses, design studies, interpret data, and present findings, all in the style of psychological scientists. This is an active learning course in which students will be discussing examples and working through exercises and problems during online (synchronous) class meetings. Students will pursue course goals through a combination of assignments, including research writings, exams and quizzes, and active participation and engagement. May not be audited. Carries social science credit. Prerequisite: PSYCH 201.
