  • Overview

    The aim of this module is to provide students with an introduction to applied psychology by examining how
    psychology has used research to examine socially significant issues. A range of topics will be considered, for
    example video games and aggression, cheating in sport, bullying, self esteem and wellbeing. These areas
    incorporate quantitative and qualitative research methods and a key focus of the module is on supporting
    students to be confident consumers of research in journals and the popular media. Students should note that
    this module will include formal lectures, in-class small group workshops and a high level of participation is
    expected. For information on the module you can find it on Facebook by searching for the Introduction to
    Applied Psychology UCD page.
