All details in this unit profile for PSYC20044 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction
included in the profile.
Applied Positive Psychology Project A is the first of two integrated units. In these units, you will plan and design a research project - either a research study or systematic review - in an applied positive psychology/wellbeing and/or resilience-related field. Under the supervision of a qualified Academic supervisor, you will develop a research project proposal. This will involve undertaking (i) a preliminary literature review to identify and support your proposal; and (ii) developing a project plan, including proposed Methods, Data Collection and Analysis sections. As part of the unit, you will also complete a relevant ethics application for a proposed project.
In the unit Applied Positive Psychology Project B (PSYC20045), which is Stage 2 of the process, following proposal approval, you will undertake your research study or systematic review.
Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit,
should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification.
Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability.
See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).
