The study of Psychology at NCH explores fundamental principles, concepts, and issues in the major areas of contemporary scientific psychology. Students gain an understanding of the biological, cognitive, and psychosocial factors underlying behaviours. These include exploring what influences and regulates motivation, sensory and perceptual processes, and social behaviours.
Our interactive taster will provide an introduction to Psychology, offering an insight into what we typically learn in the study of Psychology. It will then focus on one area to which Psychology has been applied, Neuromarketing, to understand how we are potentially influenced by supraliminal and subliminal messages and stimuli that make us desire, and purchase, certain products more.
This taster will also include an introductory overview of studying at NCH, and there will be ample time for Q&A with Faculty and Student Ambassadors.
