PSY 329 - Self-Directed Projects in Psychology (3 Cr.)

This course provides the opportunity for students to consult with each other toward Identifying topics of individual interest in psychology and developing those interests into more fully developed projects and proposals. Students will review relevant literature and work with their instructor, a faculty project mentor, and their classmates to clarify and refine their interests into a well-defined topic of inquiry before moving toward the generation of a proposal for empirical research, program development, and/or an intervention project. Alternatively, some students may enter the class with a previously developed project proposal and will use the class as an opportunity to work toward implementation of their project. Counts as a 300-level course in psychology, but not as a seminar. Prerequisite: Junior standing and at least 5 courses in psychology; or permission of the instructor. CHANGE IN CREDITS FROM 3 to 4 approved 10/9/2012. Fall semester, repeated spring semester. McKim and Patrick.
