Requisite(s): 96846 Research Project A
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


In a collaborative lab group environment, students identify an individual research question relevant to psychology. Working closely with a supervisor they submit a literature review that justifies the research question and hypotheses. Students present and receive feedback on the thesis background and an appropriate study design to test the hypotheses. The detailed plan from Research Project A is brought to life in Research Project B. Following ethically approved data collection or study pre-registration, students analyse and interpret the data. After incorporating supervisor and peer feedback, students write up a final thesis in publication-ready journal article format. Students attend a simulated research conference to present their findings.
