What Will You Learn?

Psychology is not only a science and a profession but its concepts can also be used in everyday life. Studying this online Psychology Diploma will provide you with greater knowledge of feelings, abilities and personalities.

Most students also find that they gain a greater satisfaction within their job, their family and social life.

Psychology represents a way of thinking. It's a science that demands researchers to ask precise questions about a particular issue and then to test their ideas through systematic processes.

Psychology is not easily defined. It’s a term that encompasses a broad spectrum of matters in research and practical applications.

It is what scientists and philosophers of various affiliations created to try to fulfil the need to understand the minds and behaviour of various living beings from the very primitive to the most complex. From its roots in philosophy and physiology, psychology is now often known as the 'science of the mind.'

Your initial answer to this question will likely be quite different to the picture of psychology that will emerge as you work your way through this course. You may be surprised to find that psychology is much greater than analysing people or formulating psychological diagnoses to emotional problems.

It's also about how people are able to see colour, how stress affects our biological processes and why babies become distressed when separated from their caregiver.
