Psychology is the study of human behavior and mental processes. Psychologists study a person’s reactions, emotions, and behavior, and apply their understanding of that behavior to treat the associated behavioral problems. Psychology is not about reading minds. It is a discipline that is defined as “the study of human and animal behavior.” You need to have a genuine interest in human behavior . You could choose BA (Hons) in psychology, a BSc in psychology or a BA in psychology. Do remember that a BA degree is normally not enough and many end up doing a master’s after com
