New Course in the Department of Psychology
PSYC BC 1010 Introductory Laboratory in Experimental Psychology
Course Description and Learning Outcomes: This course is an introduction to experimental methods used in psychological research. Upon successful completion of this course, students will know how to (1) review the primary literature and formulate a hypothesis, (2) design an experiment, (3) analyze data using statistical methods, (4) communicate the results of a scientific study through oral presentation and written manuscript, and (5) carry out research studies under ethical guidelines. Students will be able to apply the acquired knowledge in all disciplines of Psychology and will be prepared to engage in advance research in fields including, but not limited to, Cognition, Learning, Perception, Behavioral Neuroscience, Development, Personality, and Social Psychology.
Prerequisite: A student must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in BC1001 or an equivalent Introductory to Psychology course to enroll in this lab.
General Education and Major Requirement: Together with BC1001 Introductory to Psychology lecture (3 credits), this course (1.5 credits) fulfills one half of the laboratory science requirement for both the Department of Psychology and for the College. The other half of the requirement can be fulfilled by taking any other lab/lecture course in psychology. (Majors, note that you still will need to take three lecture courses, one from each of Groups A, B, and C, and at least one with its lab.)
Preference is given to sophomores. Enrollment through the Psychology Lottery on eBear, which is NOW CLOSED. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the wait list.
