PSYC 202 - Research in Psychology II

This course continues instruction begun in PSYC 201 . We more closely examine key factors for planning and implementing research studies, such as validity, variable operationalization, and common ethical dilemmas faced by psychologists. Students gain in-depth experience in developing, interpreting, and communicating different types of empirical psychological research designs (e.g., experiments, surveys, interviews). Every semester. Prerequisite(s): PSYC 100 , PSYC 201  or MATH 253 . We recommend that students who plan to take MATH 253  as their gateway to Psychology 202 consult with a member of the Psychology Department as soon as possible. These students will be expected to acquire proficiency in the topics covered in PSYC 201  (e.g., psychological research methods, SPSS, APA writing style, ethical guidelines) (4 Credits)
