PY 3100 - Experimental Methods in Psychology

The Experimental Methods course explores a variety of reearch designs, experimental control techniques, statistical procedures, and issues that arise in conducting laboratory experiments with human participants. Although the focus is on experimental methods used in the psychology laboratory, descriptive and correlational designs, which ae more typical of field research, will receive some attention. Although the fundamentals of empirical research are explored in the context of the science of psychology, many of the topics covered apply to being a scientist of any discipline. Students are required to conduct a unique experiment, in a lab, and to produce a complete research report that is written in APA format.

Prerequisite: BSS 2100  and declared PY major or minor.
