Psychology

Psychology is the science of behaviour and mental processes in people. Important issues are how we think, feel and react, how we perceive our surroundings, how we affect and are affected by others and how we develop during our life cycle. These issues are covered in similar basic courses in psychology worldwide. Special emphasis is placed on laboratory work in which experimental methods are trained. Much of the literature is in English.
