Introduction to Psychology

Category: Health & Wellbeing

Monday nights x 10. Autumn term

Why do people behave the way they do?  What shapes our personality?

How do we learn and change throughout our lives? How good is your ability to cope with pressure? 

These are some of the questions that will be explored in our ‘Introduction to Psychology’ course. 

This course will lead to a deeper understanding of ourselves and others by learning about human behaviour, how we interact with others and how society and culture impact our behaviour.
