Online. Students must purchase E-Prime 2.0 Professional separately from Psychology Software Tools.
This online video course, "E-Prime®: Introduction to Programming Computerized Behavioral Tasks," is designed to give students hands-on experience in making computerized experiments in E-Prime®. The course was designed by and is led by Instructor David McFarlane. In this course, David takes students on a systematic step-by-step tour introducing the full range of core elements of E-Prime® 2.0. Through a series of guided exercises, you will see E-Prime® in action, and make your own working programs using text, images, sound, movies, and so on. The course even includes a lesson on using E-Prime® for fMRI and psychophysiology studies.
The course is an approved Michigan State University Continuing Education Course. Successful completion of the course will result in the assignment of 1.5 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).
Online and a one-week lab on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.
This program will train laboratory scientists to use the techniques and flow cytometry equipment to diagnose various medical conditions and learn the techniques to arrive at a diagnosis quicker and with more accuracy. This certificate program is made up of three, two-credit courses. The first two courses are only available online, and the third is a one-week lab taught on the main campus of Michigan State University.
The Certificate Program is comprised of the following courses:
- Concepts in Immunodiagnostics (online): BLD 850, 2 credits
- Clinical Application of Immunodiagnostics Principles (online): BLD 851, 2 credits
- Immunodiagnostics Laboratory (week-long intensive on-campus format): BLD 852, 2 credits
The Master of Science in Beam Physics requires a total of 30 credits, of which at least 16 must be at the graduate level. The remainder may be upper division undergraduate. Master's students are also required to complete a Master's Thesis or Master’s Essay (remotely, with supervisor at MSU and/or with approved external mentors at National Laboratories and other universities)--up to 12 credits.
Credit can be earned in a variety of ways by combination of the following classes:
- Introduction to Beam Physics (online): PHY 861, 3 credits
- Nonlinear Beam Dynamics (online): PHY 961, 3 credits
- Particle Accelerators (online): PHY 962, 3 credits (may be taken twice)
- US Particle Accelerator School (USPAS online): PHY 963, 3 credits (may be taken repeatedly)
- Seminar in Beam Physics Research: PHY 964, 3 credits (may be taken repeatedly)
The Michigan State University (MSU) Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics Program offers a Certificate Program in Molecular Laboratory Diagnostics. Completion of the three courses is required for the certificate, though individual course enrollment is possible with appropriate prerequisites. The didactic courses are taught via computer on the World Wide Web through MSU's Virtual University. The laboratory component is a hybrid course, taught online and over one week on the University's East Lansing campus. Participants can also arrange to complete this segment at a remote site where proper equipment and instrumentation is available.
The courses required for the Certificate Program include:
- Concepts in Molecular Biology (online): BLD 830, 2 credits
- Clinical Applications of Molecular Biology (online): BLD 831, 2 credits
- Molecular Pathology Laboratory (on- or off-campus): BLD 832, 2 credits
