PSYCHOLOGY SENIOR CAPSTONE/SENIOR PROJECT
The Senior Capstone experience is a 2-semester small seminar class in which students solidify knowledge in the field of psychology, develop a theoretical paper and research proposal within a theme selected by the seminar instructor, and explore the ways in which a psychology degree creates a foundation for future careers. PSYC390, Quantitative Research Methods is a very strict prerequisite for the Senior Capstone.
Empirical research projects and community placement options for the capstone require prior planning with a faculty member and an application to the department. Some students choose to pair the small seminar with a hands-on experience through the Career Center’s Internship program that allows students to earn Psychology Elective Credit through volunteer work at a local organization.
