Welcome to the fanlisting for the discipline of psychology - academic, applied or both. In brief, psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour, including brain processes.
Psychology has many fields
(e.g. social, forensic, developmental) and it uses a wide range of methods to develop theories. Psychology is not another word for psychiatry or counselling. Though psychology is closely linked with psychiatry and counselling, it is not the same. For more info, see this page
I was interested in psychology for several years before I decided to complete a degree in it. I think it encompasses so much and can be applied to so many aspects of our lives. I believed it would be a subject which would have application beyond academic interest, improving my understanding of society and myself, and I was not wrong. I also think that completing a psychology degree helped me to become an even more understanding/open-minded person and a better thinker than I was when I first began studying it.
