Signing Up for Experiments
- Information on Research Orientation Requirement
- The Psychology Department regards your exposure to psychological research as an educational experience. This is comparable to a laboratory section of introductory courses in other sciences, and it serves additionally to acquaint the student with a broad cross-section of contemporary psychological research. If you choose to participate in studies, you may choose which studies you prefer to participate in, and 6.5 hours of studies must be completed. You will receive one half-credit (0.5) for each half-hour of participation in a study. Failure to fulfill 6.5 hours of credit will result in a grade of Incomplete (I). The participation of students is appreciated and essential to the research of the Psychology Department. The research contribution made by the students becomes a lasting part of the body of scientific psychological knowledge.
