Taught By: Pantea Farvid

Section: A

CRN: 7454

Credits: 4

Studying and applying psychology requires learning research methods. Students learn the basics of observational, experimental, and quasi-experimental studies in psychology. Topics include the development of theoretically driven rationales for research studies, how to define appropriate research questions and hypotheses, internal and external validity, evaluation of bias, and the main research design types and features. Students learn how to think critically about research from both conceptual and applied perspectives. A prior course in statistics is recommended for those who have no research experience (e.g., data collection, data entry, or data analysis).
