Psychology is the study of understanding human mind. It is defined by innovative experiments and ground-breaking research that continuously unlock the infinite secrets of the psyche. The psychology program offers the opportunity to understand and investigate various areas of psychology:  how humans learn, adapt, and remember; how they change over their lifetimes; how they are affected by the presence of others; and, how their behaviour relates to their physiological functions.
