PSY 543 Seminar in Cognitive Psychology

3 Credit(s) W W-III

This seminar provides an opportunity for intensive study, in a small-group setting, in cognitive psychology. Students will read and analyze advanced cognitive literature and will engage in a substantial amount of informal and formal writing. Through revision of written work (based on feedback from peers and instructors), and through discussion of writing processes and conventions used by psychologists (e.g., from the publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association), students will learn to express themselves more effectively. Students will also reflect upon the ways that writing can support learning of advanced concepts in the subfield of cognitive psychology. The specific topic will be announced in advance. Three lecture hours per week.
Prerequisites: WII course, PSY203S , PSY211 , and at least six credits of PSY courses numbered 300-399.
