About this Unit
This unit exposes students to advanced psychological methods. This will provide a strong basis for postgraduate studies and further strengthen applied research skills. The first half year will focus on qualitative methods. It will be assumed that students have not been exposed to these methods previously and this component of the unit will begin with an introduction to the topic before progressing to the major qualitative methods. The second half year will focus on quantitative methods and aims to extend and challenge some of the common statistical methods taught in earlier units.
