Psychology is the scientific study of how people think, feel and act. It aims to answer important questions such as what factors influence human development. This course introduces students to a breadth of knowledge focussing on the psychology of self and others. Psychological knowledge also helps us understand the way that individual’s function within groups. This consists of knowledge associated with socialisation, moral development, the formation of attitudes and how people relate and communicate. On a larger scale psychological knowledge can help us to understand how individuals’ function within different contexts and how this is influenced by culture, shaping people’s values, attitudes and beliefs. The study of Psychology is highly relevant to further studies in the health professions, education, human resources, social sciences, sales, media and marketing and management.
