In this unit, we will examine the history of Western psychological theorizing from its beginnings in ancient Greece, through to the schools and perspectives of psychology including Structuralism, Functionalism, Psychodynamic, Biological, Behavioristic, Gestalt, Cognitive, Cross-cultural, Humanistic and Evolutionary. The aim is both to build a familiarity with psychology’s intellectual origins and to foster an awareness of its many false steps, dead-ends, and alternative pathways to gain a better appreciation of the social, cultural, and, above all, psychological influences on the theorizing of psychologists. Students will be able to define psychology and understand what psychologists do and identify the major fields of study and theoretical perspectives within psychology and know their similarities and differences. In the end, students will gain a better appreciation of why contemporary psychology takes the shape it does.

  1. Describe the evolution of psychology and the major pioneers in the field
  2. Identify the various approaches, fields, and subfields of psychology along with their major concepts and important figures

Personality
 

This unit is an introduction to the psychological study of human personality, broadly speaking and more specifically in terms of how we may understand individual differences in personality and the personalities of individual persons. Personality psychologists use empirical methods of behavioural and clinical science to understand people in biological, social, and cultural contexts. Students will learn the strengths and weaknesses of the major personality theories, as well as how to assess, research and apply these theories. As much as possible, application to real-life situations will be discussed.

  1. Identify the various perspectives that are common in the area of personality psychology and critically evaluate each in terms of its explanatory and predictive power.
  2. Theories and perspectives of personality development: psychoanalytic, humanistic, trait, and social-cognitive.

The course introduces students about different cognitive concepts such as perception, memory, attention, intelligence, language and thought in the various manifestations of the study of mind and behaviour. It introduces the basic framework on how psychologists scientifically study and understand the cognitive processes through various quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry. The course also takes through the various applications on how the human mind works in different situations and in our everyday life such as the applications of human memory in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and modern machines. Students will have the opportunity to examine these concepts from multiple psychological perspectives and to reflect upon the applicability of these concepts. This course will help the learner learn about

  1. How people perceive, learn, represent, remember and use information.
  2. To develop an understanding of the influence of behaviour, cognition, and states of consciousness and behaviour.
  3. To appreciate the use of various models, theories and methods in understanding cognitive processes.

Topics on sensory perception in non-human animals may also be covered. Data gathered from psychophysical research and studies of both humans, and other animals will be discussed. The unit will review the mechanisms and principles of operation of vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell.
