Introduction to Psychological Science and Society (1009PSY)

This introductory course explores the application of psychology to human problems. As psychology is a science, the course will focus on the importance of the scientific method as a way to seek answers to applied problems (including professional ethics and broader value systems). The course then examines how psychological knowledge and methods are applied in areas such as health behaviour and clinical psychology to help individuals to change or to function optimally. Finally, showing the global perspective of psychology, the course examines how psychology can address issues of public concern such as multicultural relations, education and training, and crime.
