Course summary

How do our brains work? Is our behaviour influenced by our genes, our environment or both? Psychology gives you a fascinating insight into the factors that influence how people think, feel and behave. This course is, to our knowledge, the first in the UK, that teaches the core curriculum from an holistic perspective so students fully appreciate how different areas of psychology (biological, cognitive, individual differences, developmental, social and conceptual and historical issues) integrate to facilitate greater understanding of human behaviour by exploring themes such as feelings, behaviour with others, thinking and communication and learning and memory.
