PSYC71-631: Masters Dissertation - Part 1

Description

This is the first of four thesis subjects across four semesters of enrolment in which a student engages in a significant research investigation/project under supervision to produce a thesis in the form of a journal article manuscript (5000 to 7000 words) ready for submission to an appropriate journal. The research project will address an area of relevance to clinical psychology. In this subject, students complete the groundwork for the research project including a research proposal and ethics application (as appropriate). Students are expected to complete the remainder of the research project over the remaining three subjects.
