This workshop provides you with an initial taste of the fascinating subject of human psychology.
We will check out our assumptions and expectations – what kind of subject is psychology? Is it a science - and how does it resemble and differ from the sciences we all know? What methods do psychologists use, and how do they reduce subjectivity and bias?
This session will give you an advance canter through the topics to be studied over the next eight weeks, and will hopefully whet your appetite to explore these further.
You should be aged 19+.
There are no formal entry requirements for this experience.
What is psychology?
You will be assessed through an exploration of your prior knowledge and expectations, and your understanding of psychology as a science.
You just need pen and paper or a laptop.
You can progress to our Exploring Psychology eight-week learning programme.
