The Research Project is a compulsory component of the BSc(Hons) degree and may be included as one of the courses for the BA(Hons) degree and PGDipSci and Part I of a Masters degree. The project requires the completion of a research project where the work is performed under the close direction of a designated supervisor. Intending project students may discuss ideas in the first instance with the 400-level Coordinator.

PSYC470 and PSYC475 provide students with an opportunity to carry out a piece of independent research under the close supervision of a designated member of the academic staff of the School.

Completion of PSYC470 is a compulsory requirement of a BSc (Hons) degree majoring in Psychology and may be included as one of the papers for the BA (Hons) degree, the PGDipSc and Part I of a Masters degree. Most projects will involve the student collecting empirical data. A literature review is not permissible as a project. However, a non-empirical project can be completed as long as it shows critical and original thinking.

Students will be required to prepare a report on their research activity using standard APA format.
