Introduction

This unit provides an introduction to major areas in psychology and to basic techniques for psychological investigations. The online material covered includes the historical context of psychology, research ethics, lifespan development, abnormal psychology and learning. Students are required to undertake independent reading to extend their knowledge in the areas covered in the online material. In practical activities 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 practical activities and experiments that highlight some of the key aspects of the topics covered in the online material.
