About Psychology

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and how the brain operates, encompassing social, behavioural and cognitive science. It is a field of study that has long fascinated and is of more importance than ever today, when mental health issues are on everyone’s radar.

Pioneers in psychology, such as Sigmund Freud, helped develop investigative methods for human behaviour that are still used today. You can learn more about Freud’s findings through a course in psychology, behavioural studies or integrated human studies. A qualification in any of these areas can lead to roles in a range of industries including business, communications, human resources, health, marketing, sports management, law and media.

If the field of mental health is of interest to you, then studying psychology or social science (psychology) offers a gateway into the field. You will not only learn about mental disorders, but also learn about the legislation and policies that support sufferers of mental illness, and gain the skills to effectively evaluate risk and manage this through intervention and recovery.
