96632 Introduction to Psychology B

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Psychology is a diverse field which seeks to understand human behaviour and mental processes. Along with Introduction to Psychology A, this is one of two subjects that introduce students to the core concepts of psychological science, and builds foundational skills in academic report writing and critical thinking. Students explore the history and philosophy of psychology and gain experience in the application of psychological methods and interventions to the study of mind and behaviour. Students learn about leading psychological theories across a range of psychology's major subfields and explore how biology, learning, cognition, motivation, and emotion filter experience. Such insights help us to better understand human behaviour and individual differences, and foster values of diversity, equity and inclusion.
