The course introduces students to the fundamentals of psychological research, including the nature of psychology as a science, the selection of a research problem, research designs, writing research proposals and papers using APA style and ethical considerations. PSY 0035 is only available to students who have taken it in the past and wish to improve their grade. Anyone who has not previously taken 0035 will not be allowed to enroll and should instead enroll in PSY 0036 Research Methods Lecture and PSY 0037 Research Methods Lab (this is the same course as 0035 (Lecture and Lab); only the numbers and name have changed). If you have previously enrolled in PSY 0035 and wish to repeat it for grade improvement, you will need the permission of the Psychology Advising Office. To obtain a permission number, contact Jennifer Stapel, email@example.com, 3113 Sennott Square.
