Courses: Overview

The other courses I teach in the Psychology curriculum are listed below:

Undergraduate Courses:

Research Methods: PSY 2021 (Undergraduate): This course is an introduction to descriptive and inferential research techniques as they are applied to the study of psychological issues. We focus on how to use the scientific method to design, conduct, and formally present laboratory experiments, quasi-experimental studies, observational studies, and surveys. The course also examines ethical issues in conducting psychological research. This course is designed to develop research skills common to all social and natural sciences, foster critical and analytic thinking, and develop skills in writing scientific papers.

Advanced Research Methods and Statistics II: PSY 4035 (Graduate): Advanced statistical design will address advanced research methods and statistical procedures appropriate for the conceptualization of psychological research and analysis of multivariate psychological data. Topics will focus on providing methodological and statistical issues and expertise relevant for conducting and analyzing research using the following techniques: multiple and logistic regression, (multivariate) analysis of (co)variance, discriminant analysis, canonical correlation, and factor analysis. Practical understanding of these techniques will be achieved through hands-on conceptualization and analysis of research questions using large sample databases and SPSS.

Intro Psych Seminar: PSY 1011 (Undergraduate): No longer offered.

Introductory Psychology: PSY 1001 (Undergraduate): Introductory Psychology is an introduction to the basic concepts, methods, and problems associated with the scientific investigation of human and animal behavior. Although this course is primarily conducted on a lecture basis, students are encouraged to actively participate in classroom discussions and demonstrations as well as to ask questions and make relevant comments throughout the semester.

Computer Applications: PSY 1021 (Undergraduate): No longer offered

Psychological Testing: PSY 2381 (Undergraduate): This lab course covers the theory, construction, use, and interpretation of the wide range of available psychological, neuropsychological, and educational tests. Tests of intellectual ability, academic achievement, industrial aptitude, and personality and clinical variables will be reviewed. The laboratory portion of the course is designed to familiarize the student with the actual development and use of psychological tests.

Statistics: PSY 2031 (Undergraduate): This course is designed to help you to learn the basics of statistical procedures as they apply to the behavioral sciences. We start off by considering simple statistical procedures that allow you to describe your data succinctly and accurately. We then turn to more complex statistical procedures that allow you to infer cause-and-effect relationships among variables. Another aim of this course is to increase your ability to use computers as tools in psychology. Students are trained in, and are expected to develop some degree of mastery of, the use of a microcomputer as a tool in analyzing data. Laboratory exercises have been designed to give you this experience.

Neuropsychology: PSY 2121 (Undergraduate): Neuropsychology introduces students to understanding human brain-behavior relationships. Emphasis is placed on commonly used approaches in the assessment and measurement of human behavior and how the human brain in responsible for cognition, language, memory, spatial processing, emotion, and personality. Students gain an understanding of principles of brain organization, individual differences, and professional and clinical issues in neuropsychology.

Assessment & Evaluation: PSY 4235 (Graduate): Assessment & Evaluation: PSY 4235: Students in this course study and evaluate research methods and problems in the major fields of psychology. Topics include experimental and quasi-experimental research designs, reliability and validity, power and meta-analyses, and ethical issues in psychological research.

Advanced Research Methods: PSY 4005 (Graduate): Students in this course study and evaluate research methods and problems in the major fields of psychology. Topics include experimental and quasi-experimental research designs, reliability and validity, power and meta-analyses, and ethical issues in psychological research.

Ethics in Psychology: PSY 2361 (Undergraduate): Basic issues in clinical psychology will be addressed, including ethical principles, psychological assessment and diagnosis, psychotherapy and clinical judgment, and clinical research. In addition, the relationship of clinical psychology to other disciplines will be discussed.

Research Seminar in Neuropsychology: PSY 2751 (Undergraduate): The Research Seminar in Neuropsychology will immerse you in specific areas within the field neuropsychology, the study of human brain-behavior relationships. Emphasis will be placed on traumatic brain injury (TBI), including moderate-to-severe injuries, as well as mild TBI or concussion. The first half of the course will focus on research related to how individuals sustain and recover from TBI. The second half of the course will focus on sports-related concussion in youth, collegiate, and professional athletes, with an emphasis on how athletes sustain concussions, how concussions are assessed, treated, and managed, and how return-to-play decision are made. This course will introduce you to research in the field of neuropsychology through primary source material in the field in the form of book chapters and journal articles, and you will generate a unique research proposal consistent with the field of neuropsychology as well as the guidelines of the American Psychological Association.
