Description

This course is a broad introduction to the field of psychology from a historical and socio-cultural perspective. It explores how psychic, social and historical forces have shaped our knowledge of human behavior and psychology. Students explore diverse theoretical frameworks, debates and research findings that have shaped some of the major areas of contemporary psychology from a local and global perspective. This course also examines the research methods used by psychologists across these areas to study the origins and variations in the behaviour of individuals and groups.
