Synopsis

This is the first of two courses that contribute towards the Psychology Honours Project. The overall project will involve an individual piece of research in a selected area of psychology in which information concerning an approved topic is gathered, organised, analysed and discussed in a critical and evaluative manner. The research requires advanced knowledge of research methodology and appropriate techniques for analysing data. In this first course, students are required to decide on a topic; submit an ethics application and research proposal; commence their review of the literature; begin the operational phase of their research; and submit a progress report at the end of the semester.

This course contains a mandatory residential school for both external and on-campus students.
