Past News

The senior psychology major students enrolled in the Applied Research course in the fall semester of 2010 designed, measured, and analyzed the data gathered for their research project: Academic Satisfaction and Performance as Functions of Optimism, Sleep, and Perceived Stress. They wrote an extensive review of pertinent literature and proposed the research method, then collected the data and performed the statistical analysis and integrated the findings into a discussion of the results. In the spring semester of 2011, these students created a power point presentation and shared their research experience in a paper presentation at Middle Tennessee State University on April 16, 2011 at the Middle Tennessee Psychological Association conference. They also shared their experience in the same format at the Union University Scholarship Symposium on May 3, 2011.
