PSY499: Independent Study/Community Experience

3 Credit(s)
Independent Study/Community Experience allows the exceptional junior or senior Psychology major in good academic standing an opportunity to conduct independent research, or participate in a community experience under the supervision of a member of the department faculty. Topics to be investigated for a research focused independent study, objectives to be met, and the criteria for grading must be prearranged during the semester prior to the one in which the study will be conducted. Students must make their own arrangements for a community experience, including plans for an on-site supervisor who agrees to evaluate them at the end of the semester. A minimum of eight hours per week is required for 3 credit hours. Community experiences, although taken for credit, are evaluated on a Pass/Fail basis.
Prerequisite(s): Junior or senior major in Psychology with all other requirements nearly completed (one or two courses at most remaining), a 3.0 GPA in Psychology and permission of a supervising faculty member.
