The capstone project draws on theory, knowledge, and skills gained throughout the Master of Applied Positive Psychology program. In this subject, students will design an intervention or study, grounded on the science of positive psychology, within a context of their choice. Students will be expected to critically review relevant literature, document planning decisions, and consider methods for evaluating intervention/study outcomes. The project will culminate with students presenting the project in a poster presentation and journal style paper.
Hurdle requirement: This subject has a minimum hurdle requirement of 80% attendance at all tutorials, seminars and workshops.
