Senior Project Demonstrating Excellence

This course is one of the three senior capstone courses for psychology majors, which are designed to provide a final, intensive learning experience to assist graduating seniors with further exploration in several areas of psychology or a more in-depth immersion in a single area of interest. In this course, each student will outline, develop, and complete a detailed senior project. The project may be an original empirical study designed and carried out by the student with the results written up as a scholarly research paper or poster. Alternatively, students may complete an in-depth research based paper, as a literature review/critique in an area relevant to the field of psychology. Such a paper would explore the past, present, and future of an area of psychology in which they have an interest and would be based on a review of at least 20 empirical journal articles. Prerequisites: PSY 180 and PSY 355 and junior standing.
