Psychology is the scientific study of "why," or specifically, the examination of behavior and mental processes and their application to human welfare. It is a tremendously broad field spanning subject matter from the biological to social sciences. 

The study of psychology prepares students for work in fields like counseling, education, health care, human resources, politics, probation and corrections, public relations, social work, statistics, and more.
