The School of Psychology and Social Science has an active research profile, results of which are used to inform the School's degree programs. Staff in the three main discipline areas of the School all conduct research in either their areas of expertise, or in the scholarship of teaching and/or professional practice. Staff also conduct research, in collaboration with industry partners, that is relevant to their respective professions and disciplines. Some staff undertake research on their own, while others collaborate with researchers from the School, or partners from outside of the School and the university. Many staff in the School focus their research activities through one of the School’s research centres, the Social Justice Research Centre, the Lifespan Resilience Research Group, the Cognition Research Group, and the Psychopathology Research Group.
