Research Project I


Course Objective

To gain research experience under the supervision of a staff member.

Course Content

Throughout the first year students will conduct a research project. In
this course groups of students, under the guidance of a faculty member,
will participate in a research project and write a formal report on the
research progress. Students will learn how to design and program an
experiment or an applied study. This research project is intended to
involve students in research and to allow them to apply their acquired
theoretical, methodological and statistical knowledge in developing an
original research project. In general, it is expected that the research
project consists of a series of two empirical studies to be conducted in
small student groups. The form and content of first- year projects may
vary widely depending on the student's particular area of interest.
