PSYC6541Master's Research Apprenticeship6 ch
Research experience and training is considered an integral part of graduate training in Experimental Psychology. During the Master's year, all students are required to participate in a master's research apprenticeship with their thesis supervisor. Work will begin in the fall term and continue into the summer. It is expected that students will be exposed to most phases of the research process, including background reading, study, design, data collection, data analysis and manuscription preparation. By the end of the summer term, the student should have prepared a written research report in journal article format. The supervisor will assign a letter grade when the student has completed the apprenticeship requirements. In most cases, the student will collaborate with the supervisor on revisions to the research report prior to submission for conference presentation and/or publication. Required course.Prerequisite: none.
