Welcome to the Department of Psychology

The courses that are offered to students at our department aim to provide extensive higher education academic training where we focus on developing critical conceptual skills and an in-depth understanding of the discipline of psychology.  The purpose of receiving training in psychology is ultimately not only to gain insight into the fascinating field of human behaviour, but also to learn how to apply this knowledge in different personal and professional contexts.
