About this unit
Learn the fundamental elements of psychology so that you can begin on a path towards social science and behavioural studies courses.
The Psychology 100 unit provides an appreciation for the way the mind works, and an understanding of the science behind it, giving you an insight that you can take into future interactions with others.
The unit covers the science and ethics involved before drilling down into the areas of sensation, perception, consciousness, learning, memory and language.
With a solid grounding in these concepts behind you, you will find immediate relevance to your analytical, problem-solving and communications capabilities.
Delivered online by Open Universities Australia in partnership with RMIT University, this unit is a core requirement of RMIT’s Bachelor of Technology (Computing Studies) and the Bachelor of Business (Financial Planning) courses.
