PSY6072 Capstone Project
This course provides opportunities for students to put their understanding of theories and research methods of positive psychology and positive education into practice by completing an individual inquiry-based project in a real-life context. Specifically, students will first identify an issue that needs to be addressed, and then design and implement a positive psychology intervention or a positive education programme in a student-initiated setting that aims to tackle the identified issue. While working on the independent project, students are expected to apply knowledge and skills in positive psychology and positive education within an educational or a community setting. Such an inquiry-oriented learning avenue will enable students to consolidate, integrate, and reflect upon the knowledge and skills they acquire from the programme before the impending transitions to post-graduation career pursuits.
