This course provides an introduction to the philosophy of science and the examination of hypothetical deductive methods and their relationship to theory. Topics include the nature of experimental research and design, experimental and non-experimental research-including group and single-subject designs, literature reviews, research ethics, the collection and analysis of data, and writing APA-style reports. Collection, handling, and analysis of original empirical data during and outside of class, and in both experimental and nonexperimental designs, are an integral component of the course. The course is designed for students intending to pursue a degree in psychology.
