Additional Information: This article is included in a special edition relating to phenomenographic studies in higher education. It is original in that it explores how post-graduate students conceptualise the nature of argument in a scientific subject, psychology. It adopts a quasi-experimental design with students participating in a range of activities which reveal their understandings of the nature of argument. The data consist of students' indiviudal written responses to their understanding of the nature of argument in addition to transcripts of their discussions and reflections about those discussions. In addition to the qualitative analysis the data are considered quantitatively. The findings indicate that these post graduate psychology students have limited understanding of the nature of argument. Impact will be in terms of changes to the way that students participating in psychology programmes are inducted into the construction of arguments. Hellenic Psychological Society
