The main aim of this course is to help students
prepare, evaluate and run their own Psychological research. As such this is a ‘hands-on’ course, where
students will have the opportunity to conduct a small research project and
practice using SPSS for a variety of statistical analyses. The course also provides a thorough grounding
in qualitative and quantitative research methods through a lecture series.
Specific topics covered in this course include: verification and falsification of results; ANOVA and qualitative research strategies.
