  Course Description
This course is designed to introduce students to the ways that psychologists communicate in scientific contexts, including writing technical research reports (journal articles), poster presentations at conferences, and oral presentations. You will learn how to structure a research report and write using the style guidelines of the American Psychological Association (APA). The aim will be to foster confidence in a scientific style of communication one that is often quite different from that taught in the humanities. Conciseness, clarity, and exactness will be the hallmarks of successful written and oral products in the course. At the completion of Communicating in Psychological Sciences, students should have developed each of these traits in their written and oral expression.
