A two-week summer course providing an overview of the topic areas studied in Psychology.
What makes you, 'you'? What governs the way you behave, and the way other people behave towards you? This course will introduce you to a range of theories and disciplines within Psychology - including Developmental Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Cognitive Psychology and Personality Types - and how they attempt to explain human behaviour. What you learn will help you to better understand the world around you, enabling you to interpret the behaviour of others — as well as getting your head around what motivates you. This summer course is designed to give students an overview of the topic areas studied in Psychology: Developmental Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, The Study of the Brain, and Personality Types in Psychology.
A strong focus upon Cognitive Working Memory Psychology will be retained throughout the course. These topics have been designed and chosen specifically to show students the wide range of applications that Psychology can have in the real world, and how these areas could be investigated through experimental and non-experimental investigations. Students will be presented with a series of research scenarios and will be asked to design their own investigations using the knowledge and methods that have been discussed during the course.
A distinction will be made regarding the types of research methods used in Psychology quantitative and qualitative and discussions will be had surrounding the appropriate use of each method. Students will use this knowledge to prepare both a written report and presentation which outline and evaluate a psychological investigation. A key aspect of Psychology is following ethical guidelines whilst conducting research, as most studies use human participants.

The summer course is designed to highlight the importance of ethical procedures and what can happen if procedures are not followed accordingly. Students will be provided with examples of when ethical considerations need to be made, in both adult and developmental contexts. It is important too, to consider the historical and contemporary place Psychology holds as discipline.
Class field work will provide a critical socio-historical angle to the discipline, allowing students to explore the age-old debate: is Psychology an art or a science?

Students will also engage with the practical side of the discipline via project-based empirical work. A final aim of the course is to present students with details about both educational and employment prospects. They will be able to explore the career opportunities that can develop from studying Psychology, holding discussions with current PhD students on how their career path has started to develop. We aim to show students the wide range of career opportunities a Psychology course can bring, including roles in academic, clinical and research departments. An early distinction will be made regarding the types of research methods used in Psychology quantitative and qualitative , with each type discussed in significant detail.

Published by OUP Oxford They have larger-than-average social networks, and their relationships with others are harmonious. They don't get into fights and are generally slow to anger. By contrast, the very lowest-scorers are sociopaths; they callously use others for their own ends. So far so good. It is better to be well-liked than to be a sociopath.

However, in many fields, high Agreeableness reduces occupational attainment. Nice guys really do finish last, and moreover, plenty of our leaders have something of the sociopath about them.
Successful artists and executives, though, tend to be rather low in Agreeableness. This means that the high Agreeableness scorer may not be prepared to be hard-headed. You may stay in relationships that do you no good out of empathy for the others involved. Agreeableness is the most sexually-patterned of the Big Five, with — no prizes for guessing — women scoring more highly on average than men. This adds an interesting new perspective on the paucity of women in positions of power. Many of them find it difficult to be callous enough. Should we be encouraging them to be more callous, or trying to change what we reward?
Openness is a dimension of imagination. High-scorers make mental associations that go beyond what is given to the senses, or what is logically deducible. They are keen on poetry and the arts, and often have metaphysical or esoteric ideas. Nobody wants to be called unimaginative, but when you stop and think about it, it is not evident that being imaginative in this sense is necessarily useful in life. Low-scorers can be very intelligent and capable, though they will be oriented towards the practical and the soluble.
High-scorers will be more able and willing to venture into the domains of the aesthetic. However, they can also develop eccentric, paranormal or even delusional beliefs, and fail to solve simply resolvable practical problems. Neither a high nor a low score is inherently desirable; it is simple a matter of harnessing the strengths that you have. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
