Course description

Why study Psychology?

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and the mind. As human beings we have a strong desire to understand why we think and behave as we do. This relevance is seen in the many practical applications that have derived from Psychology, the therapies to help those with mental illnesses and the interview techniques to help extract more information from a witness of a crime.

Where next?

There are also career opportunities within psychology itself, such as clinical or educational psychology.
