Choosing Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and the mind. It observes and attempts to provide an explanation of the various ways individuals think and act in specific situations. Psychology is applied in various fields such as health, law, management, education, family and sport.

The subject can serve as a preparation for the undergraduate study of Psychology or a complement to other fields of study by offering an in-depth perspective of human behaviour. It is also an opportunity for students to understand and reflect upon their own behaviour and that of others.
