Research

All staff members carry out research as part of their everyday work. Information about staff research projects, research interests and publications is provided on the individual staff members profiles. The department also houses two research units. These are the Centre for Applied Social Research and Action (CASRA) and the research programme Critical Studies in Sexualities and Reproduction (CSSR). 

Training in research is part of all courses in psychology, and student research becomes especially important in postgraduate courses. Information about doing a postgraduate degree by research is available on the Masters and PhD by Thesis page. All students registered for a Masters or PhD in the department are required to submit their research proposals to the Research Proposals and Ethics Review Committee (RPERC) and thereafter to the Humanities Higher Degrees Committee (HHDC).

Ethical Standards in Research

All institutions which sponsor research take steps to ensure that research is carried out according to internationally accepted ethical standards. Psychology staff, associates and students are required to obtain ethical clearance before conducting their research. Ethical clearance is obtained through the departmental Research Proposal and Ethics Review Committee (RPERC) and if necessary through the Rhodes University Ethical Standards Committee (RUESC).

More information about the Departmental Research Policy, RPERC processes and procedures can be found on the Postgraduate Research Resources page  https://ruconnected.ru.ac.za/course/view.php?id=4056#section-4
