Course Description

[[Introduction:]]
The course is designed to provide students with a thorough appreciation of issues in applied psychology, knowledge of the skills required to apply psychology effectively, and a detailed understanding of their chosen focus of application. The themes of analysis, intervention and evaluation are central to the structure and philosophy of the course, which establishes a firm basis for students to further professional training and development in psychology. The core modules provide training in research methods and professional issues. Optional modules enable further development of these competencies and knowledge while enabling students to consider their application in specified content areas.
