Requisites

Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: BSCH (12302 Psychology) or BSHP or MRES (19112 Psychology). BPSH students need to apply for manual enrolment in this course.

Overview

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.

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 UniSQ accreditation agreement with Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).

This course enables students to develop evidence-based skills through the completion of a research project. 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 near the end of the semester.

BPSH students must have completed the first 3 years with a GPA of 5.0 across levels 1 to 3 psychology courses. These students will have to be manually enrolled.
