Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behaviour. It involves developing a theoretical understanding of what makes us who we are. We look at many different elements of behaviour, from crime and mental illness, to child development and understanding gender. It is a wonderful course that allows you to explore many different, interesting parts of human behaviour and is well suited to those who ask a lot of questions and like to understand what makes people ‘tick’.
