Psychology (Credit: 0.50)

Psychology is one of the behavioral sciences and encompasses the study of the human mind. Psychologists use laboratory research and observation to determine how people's thoughts influence their actions. Social psychologists focus on how members of a group interact with each other. Students examine how these interactions can lead the group to agreements and success or disagreements and failure. Students will also explore how people use their mental processes to learn, solve problems, and face the challenges of their daily lives.
