Small Group Courses

 

 

 

The course will allow you to experience psychology in action in two contexts – in academic research and in the wider world. The goal is to show how the skills you’ve gained during the programme so far can be applied in real life and to familiarise you with some environments in which science is done and communicated.

This year this course will be delivered in a blended format. A series of short video lectures, towards the beginning of each semester, will introduce students to key concepts in critical analysis and provide tools and techniques for critically evaluating psychological research. The focus in semester 1 will be on understanding research and in semester 2 on evaluation of research. A series of six assignments throughout the year will allow students to put these principles into practice by evaluating real studies taken from different areas of psychology.
