B.S.c. Psychology (45 KB)pdf

Psychology is the science of the mind; it explores the nature of human thought and behaviour.  As a psychology student, you will learn how people relate to each other and the world around them, while also learning about yourself.  Psychologists tackle an array of questions about what makes us human; the answers they uncover challenge our assumptions and help us to understand our ever-changing world.
