Modern psychological research involves a wide array of different research skills. Many of these skills are practical in nature, including the writing and approval of ethical applications, the use of specific hardware and software, and the day-to-day running of research projects. All of these skills support activities that are vital to the completion of high-quality research.
The Research Apprenticeship module will provide students with the opportunity to enhance their skills in quantitative or qualitative research through working with a designated supervisor on a given research project. Their skills will be supplemented by targeted training using specific hardware and software techniques.
The Apprenticeship in Social Psychology will be supervised by a Social Psychologist.
