Psychology General

List: B

Pre-requisite: None

Psychology is the study of how people think, feel and act and it’s main aim is to understand humans. Psychology is very useful, both to individuals, assisting us to improve ourselves and our relationships, and to society as a whole. It can be applied to any context in which humans are involved. Throughout this course, students gain valuable insights and understandings into both themselves and their world.

Psychology is rigorous in its use of scientific method and students develop important research skills as they engage in the exploration and evaluation of data to illustrate how procedures are used to examine phenomena such as intelligence and personality. Students will also find their personal communication skills and critical and creative thinking skills are enhanced by studying this subject.

Psychological knowledge also helps us understand the way that individuals function in groups and 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.
