Junior and senior psychology majors only: Are you interested in expanding our understanding of the psychological aspects of disordered eating, dieting, and body image? If you'd like to work hard for nine months, qualify for honors, and have a publishable paper at the end of the year, this may be the course for you. Offering more support and structure than an independent study, this course will still allow you to make a contribution to one of several research areas including (but not limited to): restrained eating, dieting, disordered eating, implicit and explicit attitudes about food, and the relationship between eating and anxiety. Topics subject to change.
