CAEX 3201 - A Practical Course in APA Style


(1 sem. cr.) This 4-week course focuses on the most relevant aspects of scholarly writing as presented in the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Instruction and practice are provided in references and citations, reducing bias in language, headings, lists, statistical and mathematical copy, italics and capitalization, numbers style, and table and figure formatting. The course is designed to help prepare students for successful writing experiences in coursework, KAMs, and capstone projects. The focus of this course is on grammar only in regard to APA style nuances. Similarly, while statistics and presentation of research findings are covered in the APA Manual, instruction in the presentation of advanced research is not offered nor is it a course in research methods. Weekly assignments are based on the required text, Mastering APA Style: Student’s Workbook and Training Guide. Note: This course is for semester-based graduate (including master’s-level and doctoral level) students.
