Supervised reading or research project.
These courses provide an opportunity to pursue advanced study in a specialized area following the appropriate scheduled courses and in close consultation with the supervisor. They are not intended as a substitute for scheduled advanced courses. They are intensive research projects intended to provide laboratory/field experience in data collection and analysis. Projects must be completed over 2 consecutive terms. Regular consultation with the supervisor is necessary, and extensive data collection and analysis will be required. Such a project will culminate in a written research report.
Students must first find a supervisor before the start of the academic term in which the project will be initiated. They must then obtain a permission form from the Department of Psychology's website (www.utsc.utoronto.ca/psych/undergraduates) that is to be completed and signed by the intended supervisor, and returned to the Psychology Office. At that time, the student will be provided with an outline of the schedule and general requirements for the course, including the structure of the required log-book.
Students seeking supervision off campus are further advised to check the appropriateness of the proposed advisor with the Program Supervisor. If the proposed supervisor is not appointed to the Psychology faculty at UTSC then a secondary advisor, who is appointed at UTSC, will be required.
3.0 credits at the B- or C-level in COG and/or LIN and/or PSY and permission of the supervisor. Note: Normally students need a cumulative GPA of at least 2.7 for permission to be granted.
