Why We Need Psychology

University of London International Programmes via Coursera

This course may be unavailable.


PLEASE NOTE: due to an unforeseen delay in the launch of the University of London International Programmes' undergraduate Psychology programme, on which our Why We Need Psychology Coursera MOOC is based, we will not be able to launch this MOOC as planned in 2013.  
We will announce a confirmed launch date as soon as we can: if you are already registered for this course, you will be notified once a new date has been announced; if you have yet to register, feel free to click the ‘add to watchlist’ button above this message to receive a notification.
This course will introduce students to the discipline of psychology: in particular to the main schools of thought employed to explain human behaviour and to the potential applications of psychology in practice. 

Taught by

Simon Green of Birkbeck
