Students who successfully complete this course will be familiar with many of the major theorists and schools of thought in psychology. They will develop critical thinking skills and gain a general understanding of the many factors that influence human behaviour. Students will be encouraged to apply psychological knowledge to explain their own behaviour and that of others.
