Course content

Social and Personality Psychology functions as a foundational course with a focus on how people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours differ from person to person, and how they are affected by the factual, perceived or assumed presence of other people. The taught components delve into the core perspectives within these domains and integrates them into the explanation of human behaviours. This is achieved through a focus on theory, methodology, and research results.
