The focus of this capstone unit is reflecting upon learning from the Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree, and applying the acquired discipline specific knowledge to a range of professional contexts. Students will reflect on the utility and outputs from their learning across their degree via review and finalisation of an e-portfolio. There will be a focus on the transition into the workforce or further study. In this unit, students will also complete an applied major group project to address a real-world issue, such as via a research proposal, intervention, or evaluation. Each group will work under the guidance of an academic advisor. The project will integrate discipline and professional knowledge and skills.
