The study of psychology helps you to understand human behaviour. Study topics ranging from how humans develop throughout their lifespans and how people influence each other to how brain functioning affects our behaviour and how our thinking can lead us to good (and bad) decisions. Explore how people with psychological disorders can be helped, and how modern psychology evolved. Develop skills, attitudes and insights that are relevant to today’s complex, rapidly changing and diverse world.
