The History and Science of Psychology

Monash University

Overview

Throughout our history, humans have sought to understand not only the world around us, but also ourselves. But while we have been asking questions about ourselves and our minds for a long time, psychology as a distinct field is fairly recent.

Matthew Mundy is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Monash University. In this course offered through FutureLearn, the instructor takes us through both the history and practice of psychology, touching on different schools such as structuralism, functionalism, behaviorism, cognitivism, and psychoanalysis. From the foundations of psychology to applying its scientific method, The History and Science of Psychology provides a broad understanding of the field while developing critical thinking skills.
