In this course we try to understand human behaviour (especially our own). It's vital that you come with an open mind (but not so open your brain falls out) and a willingness to contribute to class discussion.

Last term, we designed some mini experiments to run on each other, and found out how hard it is to actually test psychological concepts properly!

This block we'll look more closely at media manipulation - how do adverts, politicians or authority figures manipulate words and images to try and make us think a certain way?
