Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour, attempting to explain why people behave in the ways they do. You will discover approaches in psychology including biological, social and cognitive explanations of behaviour. This course combines fascinating content with scientific rigour, statistical analysis and combines equally well with science or humanities subjects.
You will study major perspectives in psychology and see how research has been applied to the areas of business, gender and criminological psychology. You will also look at the application of psychology to health and wellbeing with an emphasis on addiction, gambling and stress.
