Final Project:

The final project will be a poster, completed alone or with one classmate, and an accompanying project paper (5-6 pages text, plus cover page and reference list). The project will present material that you have read, synthesized, and integrated about a particular topic in psychopathology or social, personality, or developmental psychology. You should read at least two articles or chapters related to your topic beyond the assigned readings. During the last day of class, we will have a poster session, during which you will all display your posters. The last lab session will be devoted to poster assembly. The challenge of a poster is to present scholarly material in a concise, yet understandable and engaging fashion. The accompanying short paper will go into more depth about your topic, and copies should be made available at the poster session. These papers should follow APA style.
