Level 1

This course is ideal if you are interested in developing your understanding of yourself and your interactions with others

This course explores the mysteries of how humans interact in society. How do groups form in society? Why do groups of people behave in the ways that they do? The course will look at some ways that psychologists have tried to explain these aspects of living in a society, including questions about how we try to belong, how attitudes and prejudice form and how we react when others need us.

The course will encourage you as an individual to reflect upon your own social behaviour, as well as to think about how you could understand the behaviours of others in different ways.

We will work in a variety of ways, including discussions, drawing or other visual activities and short writing exercises. We will learn from one another as well as from the research of experts who have tried to understand social behaviour, including looking at experiments. 

This course will give you an understanding of:

  • How attitudes and prejudice are formed
  • Belonging and how humans try to belong
  • Our reactions to others in society
