This course focuses on designing and presenting advanced research, with emphasis on argumentation and critical response to the readings assigned. Students report and develop their research in various formats, including proposals, reports, and argumentative and investigative essays. Students are encouraged to follow their research interests, to improve writing and research abilities, and to engage in critical inquiry. The course presents a series of small writing/research assignments (such as a proposal, a progress report, synthesis of previous research, field notes, and summaries), leading to a longer researched essay that connects to their critical psychology senior project.
