Psychology is the scientific study of how humans function biologically, socially and mentally. On this degree you will learn about a diverse range of issues, such as how children learn, socially interact and develop language, what we know about psychological and mental illnesses, how they occur and how they can be treated, why racism is prevalent in our modern world, and why failures in memory lead us to make mistakes when recalling a crime. You will also develop the research skills necessary to investigate the human mind and behaviour and explore what it is that makes each one of us unique. This degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society.

Year 1 begins with introductory modules in psychology. You will cover cognitive and biological psychology and explore the relationship between brain and behaviour, perception, memory and intelligence. The course then progresses onto aspects of social and developmental psychology, personality and individual differences. You will be introduced to research methods and data analysis and be involved in practical research work. A dedicated module will look at how psychology is represented in the media and how aspects of the course can relate to real world situations.

There is an opportunity to develop academic, personal and interpersonal skills in a specially designed module called Essential Skills in Applied Psychology. Emphasis also includes student personal development, career aspirations and employability.

Social psychologists examine factors that cause behaviors to unfold in a given way in the presence of others. They study conditions under which certain behavior, actions, and feelings occur. Social psychology is concerned with the way these feelings, thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and goals are cognitively constructed and how these mental representations, in turn, influence our interactions with others.

Social psychology traditionally bridged the gap between psychology and sociology. During the years immediately following World War II there was frequent collaboration between psychologists and sociologists. [2] The two disciplines, however, have become increasingly specialized and isolated from each other in recent years, with sociologists focusing on "macro variables" (e.g., social structure) to a much greater extent than psychologists. [ citation needed ] Nevertheless, sociological approaches to psychology remain an important counterpart to psychological research in this area.

In addition to the split between psychology and sociology, there has been a somewhat less pronounced difference in emphasis between American social psychologists and European social psychologists. As a generalization, American researchers traditionally have focused more on the individual, whereas Europeans have paid more attention to group level phenomena (see group dynamics ). [3]

Though the debate between simulation and tacit-theory is still raging in psychology and philosophy, there has been growing support for a hybrid position which accepts that some of our predictions are made through belief and desire attribution, and others are made through simulation (Kuehberger and Perner 1997). In this paper I wish to embellish on this view of how we predict behavior. I will do this through examining two sets of questions which are not sufficiently addressed within this debate:

Within the tacit-theory, How do we develop the database? That is, How do we gain knowledge about human behavior in specific circumstances? How does one know that there are no other salient characteristics in a situation? And, How does one adjudicate between two conflicting rules?

Within simulation, How is it that we have to ability to predict our own behavior? That is, How do we know what we would do in a given circumstance? How do we learn how to behave?

With Google’s dominance in the online search engine market we entered the Age of Free. Indeed, services offered online are nowadays expected to be offered at no cost. Which, of course, does not mean that there is no cost to it, only that the consumer doesn’t pay it. Early attempts financed the services with ads, but we soon saw a move toward making the consumer the product. Today, free and unfree services alike compete for “users” and then make money off the data they collect.

Data has always been used, but what’s new for our time is the very low (or even zero) marginal cost for collecting and analyzing huge amounts of data. The concept of “Big Data” is taking over and is predicted to be “the future” of business.

There’s a problem here, and it is the over-reliance on the Law of Large Numbers in social forecasting. Statistical probabilities for events may mathematically converge to the mean, but is it applicable in the real world? The answer is most definitely yes in the natural sciences. Repeated controlled experiments will weed out erroneous explanations or causes to phenomena, at least assuming we’re good enough at separating and controlling those causes.
