Politics shapes our lives – what we can do, the type of society we live in, the chances we have to succeed. This course is for people who want to understand more about how politics and government actually work. You will learn about the grand ideas and vibrant movements that are transforming the world around us, and also see how seemingly arcane customs and obscure committees hold enormous power.

In summary, this course explains ‘the rules’ of how politics works and looks at how people and politicians operate within – and bend – these rules. Both sections are examined in two ninety-minute written exams. To excel, you will need to put aside any preconceptions about politics and keep your eyes open to the world around you – the things you’ll learn about in this course are happening all around you, every day....

What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. You will acquire knowledge of theory and its applications, and develop skills of evaluation and analysis.

You will be taught in a variety of ways including taking notes during lectures, group and whole class discussions, as well as exploring topics through videos and DVDs. You will undertake individual study, pair work and presentations.

What topics will I study?

The study of Psychology is underpinned with the study of main perspectives or approaches and debates. There is no singular cause of behaviour, so it is important to consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of several approaches, such as biological, behavioural and psychodynamic. Psychologists employ a variety of methods when researching human behaviour. Consequently, it is necessary to learn about the relative merits of methods such as experimentation, interviews and case studies to name a few.... [-]
