Psychology studies the human mind and behaviour and seeks to understand and explain thought and emotion. Most Psychology programmes seek to give the student a broad background in practical applications, experimental methodology, information technology and theory construction. Psychology modules include research, statistic methods and brain behaviour, as well as looking at different branches of psychology such as criminal, educational, applied, law, management and forensic.
There are two different types of undergraduate Psychology degree; the Bachelor of Arts which focuses on liberal arts and education, and Bachelor of Science which looks at science and mathematics.
Psychology graduates move into a wide variety of public and private sector roles including human resources, social work, mental health care, psychotherapy, advertising, marketing and teaching.
