, TX,
Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes and relates to every aspect of human activity. Understanding and predicting behavior are useful skills in a rapidly changing society. 


The applications of psychology span a broad range of study. A few examples include understanding memory and making it more efficient, discerning the bases of human motivation, exploring the development and organization of personality, studying the biological bases of behavior, and understanding the dynamics of group interaction.

Earning a psychology degree results in at least three important benefits. First, it is a versatile and adaptable education. The diverse coursework includes statistical data analysis approaches, research design, computer familiarity, and technical writing skills – all of which are valuable for employment in business and industry.

Secondly, psychology complements other fields of study. It is an excellent springboard to professional schools in law, medicine, seminary, and other disciplines. Thirdly, a psychology graduate is qualified for gainful employment upon graduation.
