THESIS - I want to do my own independent research project. How do I go about doing that?
Our innovative Senior Research in Psychology course (Psych 496) involves doing your own research project under the guidance of a psychology faculty member. A student who is ready to take Psyc 496 needs to select a section of the course based on the faculty members' research areas; those interested in pursuing research-oriented graduate work (e.g., doctoral programs) are encouraged to take Psych 496 more than once with different faculty members. This course is an opportunity for a psychology major to work one-on-one with a psychology professor and conduct original work on a research topic that interests him or her.
