Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit provides an introduction to major areas in psychology and to basic techniques for psychological investigations. Lecture topics include the historical context of psychology, research design, lifespan development, and abnormal psychology. Students are required to undertake independent reading to extend their knowledge in the areas covered in the lecture program.
In practical classes students are introduced to the processes of thinking and writing objectively in a style appropriate for the behavioural sciences (critical analysis of ideas, synthesis of ideas, referencing and presentation standards). Students will be engaged in class-based and self-directed activities and experiments that highlight some of the key aspects of the topics covered in lectures.
Attendance at practical classes is compulsory.
