Course overview

Take an exciting journey through the most diverse of sciences. Discover Psychology not as a motley collection of theories, but as a powerful science that aims to improve people's lives. This interactive short course in Psychology is taught in small groups by psychologists conducting cutting-edge research.

Very interesting - the course covered a broad range of topics. It really did seem like 'Psychology in one day'!

I wanted to use the course to gather whether to pursue a degree in psychology, and potentially develop my interest into a career. The course certainly affirmed this.

During this session we will ask questions such as: Why do people think and behave differently from each other? How do we develop? Why do cultures differ and how do they shape our perception and behaviour? What makes humans so different from other species? How does our brain cope with the vast amounts of information we process? How can growing psychological knowledge help us to lead healthier and happier lives? Do you want to ask a psychologist your own question?

Of the thousands of degree-granting universities, Goldsmiths Psychology department is in the World Top 100 in the QS ranking for academic reputation. Papers by our academics are highly cited, we hold 55th place among the worlds' Psychology departments for the number of citations per published paper.
