DD801 Principles of social and psychological inquiry

To what extent should a social and psychological researcher care about the issues that arouse public concern? Is a researcher who is affected by policy developments an engaged researcher or a compromised one?

Kesi will talk about how the module begins your journey in postgraduate study by bringing into critical focus the practices of conducting and communicating social and psychological research today. The module equips you to ask questions about how research gets constructed and who is doing the constructing.
