Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour. The knowledge you gain in a psychology degree will open your mind, make you more competitive in the job market, and make a positive impact on the lives of others. It will help you understand why people behave the way that they do and will help improve the planet by understanding the link between consumption, identity and fostering environmentally sustainable behaviours. You will participate in and help drive cutting-edge research; everything from autonomous vehicles, to the impact of trauma, to understanding how the brain works. Research and career opportunities are as broad as your imagination.
