Univariate Statistics I
Formerly Psyc212/667

Univariate Statistics I is a 4 credit course (3cr graduate) that introduces basic statistical procedures used by psychologists and other behavioral scientists. These procedures include analysis of variance (ANOVA) simple and multiple linear regression, chi-square, and tests subsequent to ANOVA. Psyc209/609 is required for all Psychology majors and minors, and for all first year psychology doctoral students. Students are expected to abide by the Honor Code.

Psyc209 previously was numbered as Psyc212, and is the same course. Consequently, credit will not be awarded for both courses
