This course will examine laboratory-based research methods, problem-based learning, and working as a psychologist. It introduces different approaches within psychology – personality and individual differences, social, developmental, cognitive and biological – illustrating how they lead to distinct perspectives on key research questions, and to the methods psychologists use to answer these questions. You are also introduced to the methods psychologists use to answer these questions, gaining practical experience. In particular, you develop skills in essay writing, reading journal articles, structuring arguments and using IT within psychology. Midway through the course, you examine the above approaches in more depth and continue your study of different research methods, exercising greater independence in your practical work. In particular, you further develop your skills in critical thinking and research, reading journal articles and presentations. Also at this level, you begin to identify a topic for your Research Project which varies depending on the programme you have chosen to pursue. The earlier modules of the degree lay the foundations for more specialised study towards the end of the course, where you choose which topics to study in greater depth. Practical work culminates in an extended research project in an area of your choice. Working within the area of research expertise of an academic supervisor, you undertake a year-long research project allowing an engagement with the latest research findings and psychological theories.
