This course adopts a scientific approach to understanding a variety of aspects of human behaviour. You will learn about why certain people develop phobias and why some children behave more aggressively than others in day to day life.
You will also develop the key skills necessary to independently undertake research into particular aspects of human behaviour. By understanding the use of questionnaires, observations, experiments and correlations you will be able to apply these skills to practical problems in the real everyday world.
Future Prospects: This course can enable you to pursue a wide range of psychology-related careers in sectors such as Education, Criminal and Clinical Psychology.
