If you’re intrigued by the human mind and want to leave Immerse with a greater understanding of your own mind and others, then our Psychology summer course will be of interest to you.

Aim of the Psychology Programme

  • The Psychology programme is designed to build upon the foundation of skills that participants have already gained in a traditional classroom environment and highlight how this can be used to inspire further study at university. Participants are encouraged to explore new material in-depth and to form independent and considered opinions and ideas based on sound research and analysis of the facts. By the end of the programme, participants have a good understanding, not only of university-level content, but also the variety of degree programmes available in subjects related to History. Beyond this, participants also explore the career opportunities available to graduates in this field.

Online Program Modules

Module 1 - An Introduction to Psychology

Psychology is surprisingly hard to define. Broadly speaking, it is the study of the mind and behaviour, yet this definition raises more questions than it answers. Psychologists study how we think, feel, and make decisions, as well as the unconscious processes and the neural mechanisms that underpin them.

Module 2 - Behavioural Genetics: Nature vs Nurture

It is widely believed that psychological traits have a substantial genetic contribution. However, to what extent are they influenced by a person’s upbringing and social environment? In this module, you will see how advances in biotechnology have transformed the way we study behaviour and genes.

Module 3 - Cognitive Psychology: Seeing and Remembering

We often think that our senses and memories reflect the truth, but a wealth of psychological research points in the opposite direction. In this module, you will see how our brains are sensitive to cognitive illusions, seeing things that aren't actually there, and missing things that are glaringly obvious.

Module 4 - Personal Project

his is one of the most exciting parts of the course. In the module, you will get the opportunity to give a presentation on an area of interest in the psychology programme, engage in discussions with your peers, and receive important feedback from your tutor, an expert in the field of psychology.
