Introduction to Psychology

Thursday 29 September 2022, 7.00PM to 9:00pm

Speaker(s): Natasha Baxter BSc MSc

Psychology is the study of the human mind and social behaviour - what motivates and drives our behaviour? Why do we speak, think and behave as we do? This module will provide a comprehensive overview of the history of psychology and the underlying theories that have shaped the development and our understanding of psychology today. Students will be introduced to the range of disciplines within psychology including biological, cognitive and social psychology, and look at how these areas are applied and used in society. Looking at research methods and the ethical framework in which psychologists work, we will examine how human behaviour is tested and reported.
