What did you find most interesting
and why? Was there anything you learned that will be especially helpful
to you personally? This a Psychology course so this question is about taking a Psychology class.
I chose Psychopathology (mental ill-health), Neuropsychology (brain function and chemistry), Neurodevelopmental Disorders (e.gf ADHD Down's Syndrome, William's Sundrome, Autism), Research Methods (your own project), Anomalistic Psychology (why people believe in paranormal activity etc and the psychological explanations for these phenomena), Evolutionary Psychology (how the brain has developed and the evolutionary roots of some behaviours), Topics in Child and Adolescent Development (how we develop as we age). In the first two years I also studied things like Social Psychology (obedience, cheating, war, families, social compliance etc), Statistics, and many others.
Psychology is fascinating if you are interested in people and what they do and why. It's interesting to know how humans got to be as they are, how we develop from child to adult, what things could go wrong along the way, why crowds of people stand back and watch someone get attacked, and do nothing, and how the brain actually works. There are many, many reasons to be fascinated by psychology. Personally, I love it, and will be going into clinical psychology as soon as I can get onto the course.
