Course Aims

This course aims to 1) introduce the theories and basic principles in the psychology of learning and behavior, 2) examine factors that facilitate or constrain a human’s or an animal’s abilities to adapt to their environment, and 3) develop students’ conceptual and practical abilities to apply these theories and principles in real life situations. By the end of the course, students should be able to use these learning theories and their empirical evidence to analyse human behaviour scientifically and identify the ethical issues in animal research.
