The Psychology General course will introduce students to psychological knowledge which supports an understanding of the way individuals and groups function. Students learn about well-known psychological models and theories, and the methods used to conduct scientific investigations in the discipline of psychology. They will explore the major ideas related to personality, cognition, communication, culture and values.

The study of Psychology involves the collection and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data as well as considering the ethics of psychological research. Students will be asked to interpret descriptive data and apply it to tables, graphs and diagrams in order to distinguish patterns and draw conclusions.

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.

Psychology is a really interesting and fun subject that I have enjoyed a lot, it has taught me many, many things, including; human behaviour, personality and much more. We get to play psychology games and learn little mind games that we can use in and out of the classroom.
