Psychology Department

In psychology you will learn about….

Why people think, act and feel the way that they do.         

Whether the experiences you had before the age of five really do shape the person you are today

Why people blindly obey those in authority even when it means torturing other humans.

How human memory works and why it often fails.

Why some people suffer from mental illness and what can be done to help them.

How much of our behaviour is influenced by our biology, environment or unconscious forces.

How different approaches within psychology explain the human mind and behaviour.
