Research Methods for Psychology (Introduction)


There are no classes currently available for registration.


Our Research Methods for Psychology (Introduction) short course provides you with an overview of, and introduction to, research methods in psychology, and supports evaluation of theory and research in psychology.

Assessment is via a 1500-word laboratory report (50%), two one-hour timed assessments (30% and 10%) and a worksheet portfolio (10%).

There may be multiple instances of the class starting on the same date and at the same time. This allows us to offer additional places and you can enrol on any that have availability.

This can be taken as a standalone short course or as a part of:

15 credits at level 4
