Why study Psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of how people behave, think and feel. It is a broad ranging discipline that spans topics including brain function, memory, conscious experience, lifespan development, social behaviour and the full spectrum of functional and dysfunctional behaviour. Undergraduate students will gain an understanding of how to apply the scientific perspective to psychological phenomena in the laboratory and in the real world.
