Students will gain a broad knowledge of the discipline of psychology and its applications, including major theoretical perspectives within the discipline. In addition, they will learn about the range of core research areas that make up the scientific discipline of psychology and the research methodologies and statistical techniques commonly used by researchers for information gathering and analysis. They will be able to apply that knowledge when undertaking research activities.
