PSY704 Advanced Research Design and Methods


The USC postgraduate psychology programs are committed to maintaining the primacy of public safety in the delivery of the program within the education and placement environments. This course extends students’ previous studies by providing a guide to clinical research methods. In recognising the Scientist Practitioner Model, there is a focus on research design with practical implications for clinical practice and on critical use of the research literature to guide Evidence Based Practice. The course will also provide theoretical and practical content relevant to the design of a Masters level clinical research thesis. Assessment will focus on the critical appraisal of relevant literature and the ability to apply theoretical understanding to the design and implementation of clinically based research.
