This module forms the capstone of the psychology minor and will allow students to consolidate what they have learned on the first five modules. We will discuss current topics across a range of psychology disciplines, such as health and clinical psychology, child development, sensory and perceptual systems, animal behaviour and group processes. Both cutting edge methods and state of the art theoretical approaches will be covered across these topics. This module will give students a critical insight into how psychology is informing our understanding of our world and society today.
