PSYSC 100 Research Requirement Overview

PSYSC 100 General Psychology requires you to complete four hours of extracurricular research activities that provide you an opportunity to experience psychology as a science.

You can fulfill this requirement by volunteering to participate in approved studies or completing alternative research activities (such as critical evaluation of psychological research reported in the media).

How does this requirement affect grades?

This participation requirement does not affect your grade the way that test scores do.

If your grade for the course is a C-, D or an F, then you will receive the grade you've earned regardless of whether you complete this assignment.

If you earn an A, B, or C for the course and do not complete this requirement, you will receive an incomplete (I) for the course. Ball State automatically changes an incomplete to an "F" after 12 months. To avoid this, complete your extracurricular research requirement within 12 months.
