Psychology is the science of human behavior, encompassing a wide range of methods and topics, from brain function to cultural influences.
Psychology helps students to better understand themselves and others.
The study of psychology builds students' analytical skills and scientific research methods, which can be applied to a number of fields and to a variety of subjects.
