Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. You’ll investigate how and why humans (and other species) behave in the ways they do, and be asked to consider the processes driving these behaviours. As you’ll discover, such processes can act at many levels – from those operating within single cells, to those influencing society as a whole.
With its focus on individual and social behaviour, Psychology links naturally with other disciplines such as Biology, Philosophy and Sociology. It also integrates with subjects valued in the workplace, such as Business Studies, Marketing and Human Resource Management.
