Study psychology to gain a better understanding of how people behave and think. In today’s workplaces, understanding people is a substantial advantage, regardless of your career. You can study psychology as a single major or as a double major with any other science subject.

Modern psychology is theoretical and experimental in nature, and current knowledge is based on observable and repeatable behavioural data. This can include counts of behaviours in animals and humans, and verbal accounts about emotions. That’s why the Psychology major includes practical work in laboratories or the field.
