Psychology is the study of people: how they think, act, react and interact. Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivation underlying such behaviour. Psychology is one of the fastest growing university subjects and is becoming more and more available in schools and colleges. Media interest in the subject is strong, and the subject and its applications regularly find their way onto prime-time radio and television. Psychology graduates will have the knowledge of the assessment personality, intelligence and attitudes, interviewing techniques, questionnaire design and analysis, child development, and methods of teaching and learning. Psychology is concerned with a wide range of phenomena including remembering and forgetting, thinking, problem solving, learning, the acquisition of skills, language, seeing and hearing, decision making, verbal and non-verbal communication, social interaction, and emotion. It is also concerned with the practical and ethical applications of psychological research in the profession.
