Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind. It involves a deep knowledge of the mind’s functions and characteristics and the ways in which these can affect people’s behaviours. Psychology professionals are experts on the human mind and human behaviour, performing analysis and delivering treatment to solve psychological issues and improve clients’ general mental health and well-being. Psychology courses enable students to become officially accredited in professional psychology and pursue careers in a variety of different settings. There is a range of psychology courses available, covering everything from the general aspects of social science and psychology to specialised areas such as forensic and sports psychology.
