PSY3901W: Capstone in Psychology - Research Laboratory

3 CreditsEnvironmentWriting Intensive

The capstone courses in Psychology synthesize knowledge gained throughout major and create pathways to post-graduation life. Students will reflect on the discipline of psychology and on their experiences in their degree program; class and small group discussions will support this reflection. Students will be provided with access to professionals who are alumni of the psychology program and will have the opportunity to hear these career professionals speak about their varied career paths and to network with them for advice and connections to other professionals. Students will also receive important information regarding graduate school and career preparation from the Psychology Advising Office and CLA Career Services.In this course, you will draw from your experience in a faculty research lab (PSY 4/5993) to help develop the topic of your major project paper. Students complete a research paper based on activities in the lab, or a literature review if the lab did not complete empirical work. Before class begins students must secure a laboratory research experience in a faculty member's lab for PSY 4/5993 credits or enroll in the PSY 5993 class, either the semester prior to or concurrently with your PSY 3901W enrollment. Because research lab positions are not guaranteed, we recommend BA students only select this option if they already have a PSY 4/5993 position secured. prereq: [3801 or equiv], 3001W, completion of five courses from three distribution areas, PSY major, senio
