PS1509 introduces you to major concepts and theories in psychology to provide you with a strong understanding of human mind and behaviour. You attend lectures on evolution & emotion, developmental psychology, and sensation & perception and participate in workshops where you work in a team and debate topics related to the material covered in lectures such as “should teenagers be held responsible for the crimes they commit?”. Studying psychology is beneficial to a range of careers such as management, finance and counselling, to name a few. Psychology regularly tops employers’ lists of producing the most employable graduates.
