This course helps students develop technical writing skills appropriate for doctoral level psychologists. We begin with an overview of basic writing skills, and then focus on more advanced skills such as integrating professional literature; writing logical, well-organized papers; and developing successful writing habits. The course also covers APA writing standards for professional reports, papers, dissertations, and general publications. Hands-on exercises help students immediately apply new skills. This course can be repeated for credit.
