Everything we do in life is connected to psychology. Defined as the study of the human mind and behaviour, psychology plays a number of important roles in modern society. Having an understanding of human behaviour will give students an edge in a variety of careers, including human resources, law, education and social work. Through this degree, students will get exposure to a wide range of fundamental psychological concepts, as well as to more specialised areas such as child psychology, neuropsychology, social and personality psychology, cognition and perception, and psychopathology. This degree provides an excellent foundation for those who wish to pursue a career in psychology-related areas.
