HEAD OF SUBJECT - MR A.SCHOLEFIELD
Have you ever wondered what someone else is thinking? How an individual came to be like that? Or why you sometimes do things you can't explain to yourself let alone to others? If the answer is yes, then Psychology is the subject for you. Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour; it is the study of people.
From a personal perspective, you should find the fundamental questions of psychologists interesting: "Why do I behave like this?", "Why do I feel like this?" and "Why do I think like this?" studying the ways in which psychologists approach human behaviour.
