The study of psychology enables students to understand their own behaviours and the behaviours of others. It has direct relevance to their everyday personal lives. Psychological knowledge can be applied to improve outcomes and the quality of experience in various areas of life, such as education, intimate relationships, child rearing, employment and leisure.
Stage 1 and Stage 2 Psychology builds on the scientific method by involving students in the collection and analysis of data (qualitative and quantitative) applying psychology principles. By emphasising evidence-based procedures (i.e. observation, experimentation and experience) the subject allows students to develop useful skills in analytical and critical thinking and in making inferences). Psychology builds on the opportunity to work collaboratively, demonstrate an understanding of psychological principles and draw conclusions critically and analytically.
