PSYC 098. Senior Research Project
As one means of meeting the comprehensive requirement, a student may select a topic in psychology in consultation with psychology faculty member. Usually prepared during the fall semester of the senior year, the student writes a substantial paper on the topic based on library research or original empirical research. In addition to submitting written reports, students participate in a poster conference at the end of the semester. One-half credit or one credit with a letter grade is awarded for all components of the project. Note that Psyc 98 projects are rare as most faculty do not have capacity to supervise these projects. The common routes for completing the seniors comprehensive requirement include Research Practica courses, Thesis (PSYC 096/097, Psyc 180), and the Field Placement in Clinical (PSYC 090). Registration for PSYC 098 requires the sponsorship of a faculty member in the Psychology Department who agrees to supervise the student's work on the project.
