This course examines the application of the scientific method to the study of topics in the field of Industrial/Organizational psychology, with an emphasis on the domains of personality and individual differences. Students will learn about both content- and methodologically-based issues encountered in I/O research and gain experience in searching for, reading, and discussing empirical work in the field. Students will demonstrate their overall proficiency by conducting a semester-long research project that will be presented in oral-, written-, and poster-format at the end of the semester.
