The Research Process: Applied Social Psychology (936C8)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module introduces you to the research process in a hands-on way, through working as a research assistant with a member of faculty in the field of applied social psychology. The nature of the work will depend on the research activities of the particular member of faculty you are supervised by, and it may involve working on a single project, or being involved in diverse activities linked to different projects. The research internship work could involve literature searches, running pilot studies for experimental or survey studies, creating stimulus materials (verbal or visual), collecting data, or entering data and data analysis.
