Program Description:

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind, brain, and behaviour. Psychology is relevant to every aspect of our daily lives, providing an understanding of personality, relationships and wellbeing. Psychology can also be applied to a variety of real-life settings including many careers and occupations. If psychology is not your first degree this course will introduce you to the core areas that make up this fascinating field of study. Among other things, you will learn how we make sense of the world we live in, how we learn and use language, how our behaviour and attitudes are formed, how our individual chemical make-up can affect our behaviour, and how we develop emotionally and socially from infancy though childhood, adulthood and then old age. One of the most interesting aspects about studying psychology is that we learn information about ourselves and those around us. The applied nature of the course means that in the second semester you will focus on how psychology is applied to a wide range of real-life issues. You may choose to study issues surrounding how witnesses of crime are interviewed, the role motivation plays in the sporting arena and workplace, how people cope with Parkinson’s disease, and the usefulness of psychometric testing in the workplace, to name just a few of the exciting possibilities available.
