PSY 1010 Columbia Southern University Science of Psychology Essay


You will write this essay from the perspective of a potential first-time researcher. Pretend you are pondering conducting research into the psychological aspects of a specific human behavior you have seen demonstrated in your everyday life (may be personal or work-related).

First, you should start with an introduction that allows the readers to fully understand your intent and the main points of the research you are contemplating. Be sure to identify your research question (e.g. Why do we yawn when we see someone else yawn?)

Next, include the following elements of your intended research: 

  • describe your vision of the research experiment,
  • explain research methods that could be used to describe      the behavior in your research experiment, and
  • indicate the ethical guidelines you must follow while      conducting research involving people.
