This is one of several subject combinations available in our #Certificate of Higher Education in Computing & IT and a second subject [T13]# - you'll divide your time equally between the two subjects. You will be introduced to the different ways in which psychologists investigate the human mind and behaviour, and how psychology addresses real-life issues - such as the acceptability and effectiveness of computers and mobile devices. You will also explore the profound technological, economic, political and ethical changes driven by the digital technologies that surround us. By combining study of these popular and important disciplines, you will be equipped for further study leading to a wide range of possible careers.
This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
