Learning Outcomes

Training of psychologists in Australia and internationally is structured around a number of generic skills that are referred to as Graduate Attributes. PSYC3018 is structured in such a way that it provides the opportunity for students to develop these skills. In addition, it will provide students with generalised and transferable skills that will also be useful in careers outside psychology. More particularly, the following graduate attributes and student learning outcomes will be developed through lectures, tutorials and assessment activities in particular: 

1. Knowledge and Understanding of the application of statistics within Psychology

2. Critical Thinking Skills in Psychological research 

3. Knowledge and Understanding of research methods within Psychology 

4. Communication Skills in statistics and research methods in Psychology
