This subject draws together students'undergraduate experiences in psychology by emphasising links between the science and practice of psychology in contemporary life (the science-practitioner model). The subject comprises a lectrue and a research seminar stream. In the lecture stream the three areas of strength in the Psychology Department - Clinical Sciences. Social Psychology, Cognitive Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience - will be reviewed in depth. Specifically, a case-study approach is used to explore problem-based learning in Psychology. In the research stream, students work on a research topic with a small group of peers, under the superivsion of a psychology department academic. The aims of the lecture and research streams are to prepare students for further studies within the discipline or the workplace by practicing core research skills. These include understanding ethical aspects of research, collaborating with peers in planning research, collecting and analysing data, and report writing. Consistent with best practice, individuals will report the research findings in an oral presentation to academics and peers.
