Extended Essay in Psychology

Module code: PSY606

Credits: 15.0
Semester: YEAR

Contact: Prof David Clayton
Overlap: None
Prerequisite: None

The extended essay is intended to give students an opportunity to study in-depth a topic of particular interest to them within the subject of Psychology. The essay will not entail the student conducting empirical research. Students can choose to do the Extended Essay rather than SBC304 Psychology Research Project but will need to take another 15-credit module in their final year. The Extended Essay module is intended to provide an opportunity for the student to write substantively, critically and independently about a selected and approved area of Psychology than is possible in a tutorial essay. The work also involves significant evaluation of theoretical issues relevant to the topic under investigation and the student is expected to use original research articles. The assessment comprises a substantive written dissertation.
