What is psychology?
Psychology looks at conditions of human behaviour – how we learn, remember, coordinate our actions and interact with others – and the reasons for differences between individuals, such as personality or intelligence.
Why study psychology?
As well as careers as a professional psychologist, psychology graduates have a lot of options open to them. Many go on to further study or to careers in teaching, human resource management, social work, as well as many other areas.
