In this course you will conduct a structured collaborative research project. Working in small groups, you will devise and conduct a psychological study with guidance from your supervisor. The project will be written up in the form of a journal article. The small-group nature of the course will provide you with an opportunity to engage in discussion with and learn hands-on from a staff member.



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.

The general aims of the course are:
To facilitate critical reading and analysis of psychological research reports
To show how design principles and statistics are applied in psychological research, and how research is actually done
To encourage careful, deep consideration the value of published research studies
