This unit represents the final unit within the 8 unit major sequence. It is designed to allow students to act, with the assistance of a supervisor, in the development and solution of a relevant psychological problem.

Following this, students are expected to perform appropriate statistical analyses. Each student is to write-up their research as an APA formatted research report which critically evaluates the work undertaken.
