Students will collaborate on a major research project, seeking to integrate work they have done in understanding psychological theory, in using research methods, and in applying psychological theory and research to contemporary issues. Course Objectives Senior Seminar is intended to be a “capstone” experience for students at Rhodes, and is meant to review and extend their research skills. Students will review a body of literature pertinent to a research project they will undertake. Each student will become fully conversant with the research and theory that is relevant to his or her project. The level of expertise students gain by the completion of their senior papers should prepare them to communicate effectively with professionals in their area of study. Student Skills 1.
