PSYC6823Comprehensive Project3 ch
The purpose of the comprehensive project is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate the integration of theory, critical thinking and evaluation in an experimental or applied context. The project must be on a topic that is not connected with the doctoral thesis. The student is expected to take initiative in proposing a suitable project and to work quite independently with consultation from a designated faculty member of the department who will offer guidance and advice as needed. All comprehensive projects must have prior approval of the Experimental Program Committee before implementation. Upon completion the project will be evaluated by two faculty members approved by the Experimental Program Committee. The comprehensive project can be a review paper, a grant proposal, or a research project in a minor area with a member of the GAU other than the supervisor. Students are strongly encouraged (but not required) to submit their comprehensive project to an appropriate journal/grant agency. Required course.
