Introduction to Psychology 
Psychology is the study of the mind and human behaviour. It is explored from several different perspectives referred to as approaches. These include six key approaches namely, biological, psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioural, social and humanistic theories. This course attempts to answer some of the fundamental questions we all have as humans, what shapes our behaviours? The sheer wonder of our brains and how we remember and forget? Why is food, sleep and having sex so important to us? Why do we conform or obey people in authority? What are the rules of attraction in people coming together in relationships and why we break up? 
It is a fascinating journey, and we encourage all who are interested in the science of mind and behaviour to begin their studies here.
