Applied Psychology Research Project

Module code: PS2106

This module investigates key concepts and issues underlying quantitative research methodology, research design and statistics, and ethics in applied psychology research and practice.  The purpose of this module is to provide a stepping stone between smaller-scale research projects that you have previously been exposed to and the larger-scale dissertation in Year 3. As such, along-side the formal taught element of the module, you will conduct an intermediate-scale group research project under the supervision of a relevant member of staff with expertise in professional psychology
