About This Course

Have you ever wondered why you are afraid of spiders, and what you can do to cure yourself? Have you ever despaired over the prejudice and discrimination in the world and wondered what can be done about it?

Have you ever watched a week-old baby seemingly studying intently the people and objects around it and wondered what on earth it makes of its new world, and just what thoughts, if any, might be going through its mind?

If you have answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then you'll find this distance learning psychology course a source of constant fascination as we examine a wide range of psychological topics and answer all of these questions.

Covering areas of psychology from child development to emotional disorders and social psychology, our online psychology course will give you an advanced understanding of the various approaches to this fascinating study of human thought and behaviour.
