Why Study Psychology?

Psychology is the study of the human mind and behavior. When you study human actions and experience, you better understand yourself and the people around you. Plus, you sharpen your analytical skills and use of the scientific method - knowledge that is necessary in a wide range of careers.

Studying psychology provides a solid foundation for pursuing graduate study and work opportunities in psychology and related disciplines and starts you on a path for pursuing meaningful lifelong learning. Whatever career you choose, a background in psychology can help.
