The Science of the Brain and Behaviour

 

Psychology is the scientific study of the brain and behaviour. Psychology involves the examination and analysis of various theories of our mind and behaviour and the consideration of research evidence. You will be encouraged to think critically and to evaluate claims and research in an objective and analytical way.

The purpose of Psychology is to explain why people behave in the way that they do. We try to answer this question by looking at the five approaches to Psychology: the social approach, the cognitive approach, the psychodynamic approach, the biological approach and the learning approach.

Psychology is an extremely fascinating, intriguing and enjoyable subject which is becoming increasingly popular amongst students. This rise in popularity has in turn led to a greater understanding of mind and behaviour and we aim to keep this up!
