PSYC 450D1/PSYC 450D2
RESEARCH PROJECT AND SEMINAR (9 credits)
Instructor: Karim Nader
Prerequisites: PSYC 204 (Fall or Winter), and PSYC 305 (Fall or Winter)
Applicants should have a Psychology GPA of at least 3.0. In previous years, the minimum
cumulative GPA of students accepted in the course was above 3.4 (or most recent sessional GPA
of at least 3.6). Preference will be given to students currently enrolled in the majors program in
psychology.
Goal: The major goal of the course is to give students the opportunity to design, carry out,
and report independent empirical research.
Method: Students will work in sections led by a staff member. In addition to attending class
meetings, each student will make at least two oral presentations in class and will carry out a
major empirical research project under the guidance of a faculty member or associate member.
Specific procedures may vary somewhat from section to section.
Evaluation: Methods of grading may vary somewhat between sections, but in all cases
seminar presentations, class participation, and the research reports will count in grade
determination. Details will be announced the first day of class.
Registration: The Department has only limited facilities for giving this kind of course. It is
necessary, therefore, to restrict enrollment. Selection will be based on information supplied in
this form to be submitted by JULY 29th, 2015 to Julia Marussi in room N7/9 or by e-mail at
[email protected]
Students will be notified by e-mail of the Department’s decision before classes begin in
September.
Please note that another supervised research course, PSYC 494D1/PSYC 494D2 (9 credits), is
also offered and should be considered by students who may not meet the criteria for PSYC
450D1/PSYC 450D2. There is also PSYC 395, for those who wish to complete a 6-credit
supervised research course.
