This course exists to satisfy the need for some flexibility in several programs to cater for the widely varying interests and chosen specialisations of students. It will provide a capstone experience for students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate of Science (Psychology in Schools). Participation in this course can assist in preparing students for job-related research and/or further post-graduate studies.

This course provides the opportunity for a student to pursue an area of study that will complement the other studies in the student's program. Typically, the course will consist of a specialised investigation extending the application of knowledge and skills in a certain area. This could involve, for example, a directed readings program, a replication or extension of a research project, or some other approved activity that would complement the student's program of study.
