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.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate career-readiness, a clear professional identity, and insight into the skills, knowledge and personal attributes necessary to meet the standards of performance and practice expected by their profession;
2. Critically reflect on their learning and development of their skills throughout their course and consider their ongoing development into their professional lives;
3. Critically analyse the impact of individual actions on other in professional settings and the impact of the profession on society;
4. Synthesise high-level conceptual and practical understanding and psychological knowledge to develop useful solutions to real-world problems; and
