In terms of social skills, the National Council for the Social Studies (n.d.) outlined five skills that curriculum programmes should cover: literacy skills; critical thinking skills; research-based literacy strategies; learning strategies and personal interaction; and civic engagement strategies. The School of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Cambridge has outlined the core skill areas that research students are expected to have developed throughout their studies; self-awareness; organisational skills; communication skills; networking and team-working skills; and career management. The university has categorised these skills as transferable skills that are developed specifically in students who are conducting postgraduate research. These skills are transferable in a sense that even if students do not choose academia as a career path, the skills are still useful in areas of industry outside research. Skills cannot be separated from the person; skills build capital that the individual can use to enhance employability attributes.
industrial/organizational psychology under the supervision of a thesis director and thesis committee drawn from the psychology department faculty. One member may be from outside the I/O area. The project is conducted under the thesis/dissertation guidelines adopted by the University of Detroit Mercy, College of Liberal Arts and Education. Both the thesis committee and the University Institutional Review Board must approve the research. Defense of the thesis proposal must occur during the first week of June or the second week of September following the student’s first year of completed study for full-time students or during the above months/timeframe of the year prior to graduation for part- time students. While students may work on their thesis during the summer months, limited faculty support is available from June to September.
Having a general idea of what the topic for the paper will be, the writer should contact a faculty member in the Department of Psychology to serve as advisor. The advisor assists the student in selecting a specific topic and in organizing the paper and provides an overall evaluation and final approval of the manuscript. In the case of empirical papers, the advisor will typically recommend a specific study. Research psychologists from outside the Department may be consulted or in some cases serve as the primary advisor to a topic paper, but the official reader of the paper must be a CUA faculty member. This reader must approve the topic paper before it is submitted to the Director of the M.A. Program. Given the time required to develop an appropriate topic, students should contact an advisor long before the topic paper is due.

Psychology is about people’s behavior and about people’s experi- ence. Psychologists teach and do research or applied work on subjects relating to the social and behavioral sciences. In order to discover more about behavior, psychologists study both humans and animals. Psychology covers a wide range of topics, from the way our social environment influences us to the inner workings of our bodies. This diversity of topics is reflected in the psychology curriculum.
