History Information:

Goals:
The course is intended to serve as a capstone experience for all psychology majors.  Students will demonstrate their ability to read and critically synthesize primary source material.  They will also have the opportunity to investigate a topic of their choosing in depth and communicate their findings in an extensive written report and public presentation.

Assessment:
The success of the course will be assessed by the quality of the research papers and the public presentations.

Assessment
and Goals:

<no text provided>

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE ADVANCED SEMINARS WILL REPLACE OUR EMPIRICAL INVESTIGATIONS COURSES AS THE PSYCHOLOGY CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE.  THEY WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR MASTERY OF THE FIELD BY FUNCTIONING IN A MANNER SIMILAR TO A MEMBER OF A GRADUATE SEMINAR.
