Overview

This is the second 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 research topic is gathered, organised, analysed and discussed in a critical and evaluative manner. The research is based upon a study which requires advanced knowledge of research methodology and appropriate techniques for analysing data.

This course is a competency-based course, and assessment items must be successfully completed to pass the course. These competency items form part of the USQ accreditation agreement with Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).

This course will enable the student to further develop their evidence-based skills through presentation of their research, the completion of a research project, and production of a thesis. Students will finalise the collection and analyses of data, synthesising the results such that they can be written in a thesis and communicated to other professionals.
