Ancient Greek philosophers asked questions about the life of the mind. How do the mind and the body interact? How can we tell if the world is really the way we think it is? What are the roots of violence? If you’ve ever wondered about similar questions, then the study of psychology might be the right fit for you!
Psychology is an academic discipline and an applied science which seeks to understand human and animal behavior (normal and abnormal) and the cognitive, emotional, social and biological processes related to that behavior.
While you pursue a degree in psychology, you will study the human experience by exploring the many areas of the psychology discipline such as mental disorders, social interactions, memory, learning and human development. With these skills you can pursue a career in human and social sciences, corrections and research.
With continued education, you can become a counselor, social worker, clinical psychologist, conduct behavioral research, or continue your education to go into any number of professions, such as law, business, or medicine.
