PSYC 5200 & Student Presentations

The seminars are open to any interested faculty, staff, and students. However, BNS graduate students are required to take 4 semesters of seminar (PSYC 5200) for credit. The major goal of the course is to give students a chance to practice presenting and get feedback on their research. Senior graduate students and advanced/honors undergraduates working in BNS/PNB labs may also register.

Course Expectations:

  • Attendance at Thurs 4pm talks is mandatory for students registered for the course
  • Registered students should give 1 talk per semester
  • Send in your title and a short abstract (~300 words) 1 week before your scheduled talk
  • Avoid technical problems by checking the projector/laptop/adapters well before your presentation

Grading: pass/fail based on attendance (50%) and participation (50%)
