Why study Psychology
Psychology is the study of the nature and development of mind
and behaviour in both humans and animals, including the biological structures
and processes that underpin and sustain both. Students can develop an
understanding of themselves and their relationships with others and their
society through the study of psychology. Psychology includes the study of human
behaviour from biological, cognitive and social perspectives. A variety of
thinking and research approaches used in psychology are introduced to provide a
broad perspective of psychology as a science. Ethical principles are introduced
and incorporated into the research investigations students undertake.
