NCC’s Psychology Diploma takes an in depth look at human behaviour, and how psychologists use a specific set of techniques to comprehend behaviours and the mental processes that lead to our behaviours.
Some of the topics included in this course include, the science of psychology, social influence and applying psychology.

If your interest is peaked by the way in which our species behave, this course provides a wide variety of theories surrounding psychology.

The course demonstrates the social influences on behaviour and how much society can shape the way in which we behave. Social psychologists tend to focus on the situational factors that determine how we respond to our environment. They are broadly interested in addressing the question of what it is about a particular situation that leads us to behave in a particular way, especially when our actual behaviour seems to go against how we might think we’d act if faced with the situation. Do you act the same on your own as you do with other people around? The answer is probably not, but why?

Personality is also explored in terms of the way we act, think and feel. The knowledge looks at how researchers attempt to measure personality and also how they try to explain why there seem to be so many different types of personality. What makes you, you? Characteristics including thoughts and feelings, as well as physical actions are the main aspects that make up your personality. The idea that we each have an individual personality in ingrained in our everyday thinking. “Oh, it’s his personality… he’s just like that!” We might say in order to explain to ourselves why somebody has acted in the way they have. But what do we mean when we say this? And how much does the concept of personality help us to explain people’s behaviour?
