    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for many reasons. Firstly, the course content not only teaches students how to interpret research papers, but also how to think critically about the results. From study design to statistics, students receive a well-rounded understanding of psychological research. Moreover, students learn valuable information about how to set up their own study designs. Also, the class is offered during the evening at an accelerated rate, so it is perfect for students who are working or taking a heavy course load.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to interpret research findings, as well as to analyze and critique them. The final project required us to choose a research article and present a critique about it. This was valuable because it encouraged me to truly think about a research article, as opposed to accept it because its authors are well-known or knowledgeable. All research designs have flaws as that is the nature of studying human beings. However, it is important to consider these flaws when interpreting research findings.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students will get the most out of this course if they do the reading and participate in class. Research is a collaborative activity, so outside of what is learned in the course content, it is important to ask questions and receive feedback.
