    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is excellent for students who are serious about learning about how research methodology works. It is important to arrive to each class (lecture and recitation sections) to get the full benefits. Recitation counts towards attendance grade for recitation section. In the recitation section, you will create your own original research idea based off previous research that you conduct as part of your assignments.

    Course highlights:

    I gained valuable experience as a student researcher. I have been able to apply to different research positions with much confidence. I will definitely use the skills that I learned from this course in the real world setting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook and practice the questions after each chapter, practice before each exam for lecture, by taking the practice exams that the professor posts online, attendance, presentation, and assignments are a must for a good recitation grade, adhere to APA format when submitting bigger assignments for recitation and always ask questions before submitting any assignment if you are unsure about something.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will help to prepare you for future research. You will attend a lecture as well as a recitation section, so that you can have time for reading the textbook, going over power point slides, and asking questions in lecture. Also, you can work with a mentor that will help guide you to finding an original research idea. You will have to take exams, but the fun part is being able to create your own research proposal.

    Course highlights:

    I have been able to apply to various research positions with a much higher chance of getting a call back because I turned my research idea into a poster board project and unconventionally presented at an annual undergraduate student conference. It was a very good experience if you are serious about getting into research sometime in your career.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with textbook chapter readings, practice the textbook questions, always refer to APA style check lists before submitting work in recitation, don't be afraid to ask silly questions in class or by e-mail, prepare for exams by taking the practice exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It gives you good insight of how complex and , at times, tedious research is. It also gives you a more critical mind when looking through research and knowing that it is never flawless.

    Course highlights:

    How to micromanage my time and objectives. The whole course lets you create and make up you research project.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay vigilant and ask if you are not sure. I had a helpful T.A. and the professor was very direct with his slides but you had to attend class to find the answers he asked for in his lecture slides.
