Psychology Honours Research Project B - PSYC4104

Year - 2020

This research project is arguably the culmination for your undergraduate studies. Not only will you apply the content knowledge, research skills, and statistical acumen you have gained in your other psychology units of study, you will also create your own independent research question. Specifically, you will participate in all of the steps involved in research including formulation of research questions, the design of the study including selection of appropriate methodology, and the collection and analysis of data to test the research question. Most importantly, you will interpret the findings and write a thesis reporting all phases of the project. By doing this you may create new knowledge, and you will improve your research skills, cultivate your critical thinking, and demonstrate your ability to carry out a substantial research and writing project.
