Coordinator's Message

Understanding and relating to others is an essential component of human activity and is something that we all do as part of our daily life. Therefore, to a greater or lesser extent, everyone is a student of Psychology, trying to understand the feelings and actions of others. Psychology as an academic discipline takes this innate interest in others and aims to extend and further our understanding of human  behaviour within a scientific context. This is a challenge as people are complex and multifaceted, with a wide range of factors and experiences which shape our thoughts, feelings and actions.

If you have a keen interest in exploring and learning more about human  behaviour from a scientific perspective then Psychology is a subject that will both enlighten and challenge you. Psychology is also unique, as we are studying ourselves. So, by learning about human behavior, Psychology provides us with a framework with which to make sense of ourselves and our experiences, a vital element to personal growth and development.
