Why Psychology?

Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. It is the study of people: how they think, react, and interact. Studying psychology will help you understand yourself and others. You’ll develop critical thinking and sound analytical skills; effective communication, interpersonal active-listening and intercultural communication skills; and self-understanding. If you are naturally curious and constantly in search of knowledge, psychology would be a natural fit.

One of the most popular undergraduate options, psychology is an exciting and interesting major, and one that is also challenging and useful. Psychology has a broad range of applications and offers a number of career prospects, as the skills you will learn can easily transfer into a variety of roles.
