Find out more information about Psychology

Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour. The discipline examines the role of mental functions in individual and social behaviour, while also exploring the physiological and neurobiological processes that lead to certain behaviours. The immediate goal in psychology is to understand humanity by both discovering general principles and exploring specific cases. Many practitioners of applied psychology believe that one of the objectives of the field is to benefit society. Bachelors in Psychology investigate such concepts as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, phenomenology, motivation, brain functioning, personality, behaviour and interpersonal relationships.

While psychological knowledge is typically applied to the assessment and treatment of mental health problems, it is also applied to understanding and solving problems in many different spheres of human activity. Following a Master in Psychology, you can choose to be involved in some kind of therapeutic role, resulting in clinical, counseling, and school positions. Alternatively, you can do scientific research on a wide range of topics related to mental processes and social behaviour and/or teach in academic settings.

Psychology graduates can find work in industrial and organizational settings in relevant roles such as human resources, training and employee development, forensics, career counselling, psychotherapy, school or sports psychologist, and more.
