Step Five: Research and Data Analysis

Senior Tutorial

Psychology 990, 992, and 993 are the official courses within which you undertake your thesis research. The courses are graded on a "Sat/Unsat" basis and comprise two distinct parts. The first, and where students spend most of the time, is working on their thesis project, which is directed by thesis supervisors. The second is occasional but required group meetings about the thesis process led by Bethany Burum and Head Tutor Mahzarin Banaji, who oversees the thesis program.

The 2014-2015 group meetings will be held from 9-10am in WJH 1550 on:

September 10, 2014
October 15, 2014
November 19, 2014
January 28, 2015
February 11, 2015
March 25, 2015

Please note the first day of class is after Study Card Day. Concentration Advisers have permission to sign as the instructor for Psy 990/992/993.

Psy 992 is for MBB track students, PSY 993 is for Social and Cognitive Neuroscience (Life Science) track students, and PSY 990 is for General track students; the three courses actually meet together even though they have different course numbers.
