STP - Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behaviour. It is a wide-ranging field, touching on all aspects of human life. Understanding emotions, cognitive functioning, social behaviours and individual difference is part of the study of psychology.

If you’re wanting to understand more about how people think, feel and behave, studying psychology might be of interest to you. We will be learning about analysing past studies, conducting research in psychology, and understanding different psychological approaches.
