Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. This includes history and theories of psychology, research methods, biological basis of behavior, the principles of learning, personality, and abnormal behavior.
Psychology has existed since the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Greece, but the effects of psychological studies are more relevant and respected than ever before. Contemporary applications for Psychology revolve around the assessment and treatment of behavioral disorders, analyses of behavior in school and work settings, and the enhancement of the mental and physical well-being of people.
Despite the popular stereotype of the mental health professional, different branches of Psychology are widely recognized and demonstrated in an array of industries such as education, sports, forensics, health care, government, and businesses. While many students choose to pursue graduate education, other Psychology students enter the workforce with a bachelor’s degree. Ultimately, a degree in Psychology offers an individual the opportunity to find flexible, meaningful, and fulfilling work in a high-demand field.
