Why Study Psychology?
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour, it is about ‘what’ the mind does, how the brain functions, and how we process, organise, and store information known as stimuli in the brain. Psychology is classed as a science because whilst we cannot see inside the brain, without the use of scanners, we can objectively observe and measure the way the mind works by studying human behaviour. In experiments we monitor people’s responses to tasks, such as reasoning, calculating, recognition, word association, and memory, and from the scores or results, we can gain an idea of how people’s brains function and how their minds really work.
For anyone wishing to attain a deeper understanding of the human mind and how it works, this fully comprehensive series provides an excellent opportunity to study core psychology, core principles, traditional and contemporary theories, and to begin or advance your knowledge of social, behavioural, cognitive, and developmental psychology. By taking these modules, you will gain greater insight into how the mind works, and be able to apply the learning to a wide range of settings.
