Psychology is a discipline that focuses on the scientific aspects of human mind and behavior. In psychology courses offered at LdM, students are introduced to the main theories of the discipline: biological, behavioral, cognitive, and psychodynamic psychology.
Both empirical and non-scientific approaches are used to examine psychological phenomena. Media representations are critically analyzed in class as are scientific findings. Finally students discuss and debate possible solutions to real-life problems.
