    Prerequisites: PSYC 10a and 51a. This course normally should be completed by the end of the sophomore year.
    Course Description: <b>This course will be a Zoom-based "Remote Learning" course for Summer 2022</b><br> Psychology is the science of studying human behavior. Research Methods is a course designed to give you experience with designing, conducting, analyzing, interpreting, and communicating scientific psychological research. You will learn this through short presentations summarizing the necessary background, in-class exercises, and most importantly, through actual hands-on training on the fundamentals of conducting psychological research. The primary focus is “learning by doing.” As this class emphasizes active participation, making up in-class assignments is not possible, so regular class attendance and participation are very important. Grading will be based on four written reports, homework assignments, one poster presentation, and in-class participation. Psychology 51a is required as a prerequisite.
