Hours & Credits
OverviewThe 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.
