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.
