PSYB90H3: Supervised Introductory Research in Psychology
This course provides an introduction to, and experience in, ongoing theoretical and empirical research in any field of psychology. Supervision of the work is arranged by mutual agreement between student and instructor. Students will typically engage in an existing research project within a supervisor’s laboratory. Regular consultation with the supervisor is necessary, which will enhance communication skills and enable students to develop proficiency in speaking about scientific knowledge with other experts in the domain. Students will also develop documentation and writing skills through a final report and research journal. This course requires students to complete a permission form obtained from the Department of Psychology. This form must outline agreed-upon work that will be performed, must be signed by the intended supervisor, and returned to the Department of Psychology.
