Discover psychology’s historical origins as you build your understanding of psychology as a scientific discipline, and acquire the ability to conduct rigorous literature reviews. In ‘Psychology 1A’ you will learn how scientific research supports contemporary psychological theory and practice, exploring psychological theories related to learning, development, sensation and perception, personality, and the neurobiological basis of behaviour. There is a joint emphasis on the important role of cultural competency in understanding human behaviour, and you will learn to apply an Australian Indigenous lens to psychological research and practice.
