Introduction to Psychology
Psychology reaches into every part of our lives. It is an incredibly diverse and fascinating subject that considers virtually every aspect of our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. No matter what your current interests are, what job you want in the future, how well you want to do at school or how to improve your relationships with others, psychology can help.
In this elective, you will begin to understand the relationship between the structure and function of the brain.

- How is it that the brain allows us to experience emotions like fear, sadness and excitement?
- How do we remember information?

You will learn that the study of psychology is a journey of discovery about you and your amazing brain. This elective will also help you prepare for VCE Psychology.
