This course includes the study of perception, attention, memory and emotion in adults and children; the socio-psychological processes that shape our relationships with each other and society; the development of language, behaviour, personality and thought in children; the biological processes that underpin behaviour; and the causes and treatment of abnormal behaviour. Students are introduced to the core areas of psychology, as well as receiving a strong grounding in psychological research methods. This component focuses on learning about how psychological research is conducted, analysed and reported through a series of guided-learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project in the final year.
