Our students will gain experience with the research process. Experimental track students are strongly encouraged to choose the research proposal option in Senior Capstone and carry out the project for course credit in Experimental Psychology. The research project expands on material learned in the Statistics and Research Methods courses and helps students develop skills in generating research ideas, selecting appropriate research designs, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating the findings. Students have the opportunity to present their research at the annual Chowan University Student Research Conference, and many students who complete a research project present at regional and national conferences. This track offers a basis for graduate studies in research programs.
