L3 Psychology - Full Year (Tim's Class)

Why we do what we do

Course Overview

This is an inquiry-based course that will cover significant pieces of psychological research, what made them important and what impact they have on society today in Term 1. We then move on to modern psychology in Term 2 and how it is applied in the fields of mental health, social, and forensic psychology. In Term 3, by comparing two different approaches within the field of psychology, we will investigate what it is that makes us behave the way we do. We will cover the fields of biological and sociocultural psychology to try to find out how our genetic heritage and social environment interact. Then we will investigate several issues present in modern psychology, such as gender and cultural bias, and the use of children and animals in psychological research. Specific focuses of each topic and that of the assessments will be negotiated between participating students and the teacher to allow for student interest.
