Advanced Research in Sleep: Implications for Psychosocial Functioning|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
This course is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of sleep in relation to psychosocial functioning, health and well being. Each semester, we will examine how sleep relates to one specific topic. This semester, we will explore sleep in relation to physical health, within the context of emerging adults. This course takes an intensive lab-based approach that allows students to actively partake in a semester-long research project as a group. Students will be involved in all aspects of the research process: literature review, study design, data collection and analysis, write-up and presentation of findings. Upon completion of this course, students will have a strong working knowledge of the field of sleep and physical health. Students also will be able to conduct original research, as well as develop analytical, writing, critical thinking and presentation skills.
