Description: Why do people do what they do? This is the fundamental question that the discipline of psychology attempts to answer. The specific topics that psychologists study can be as diverse as forgiveness, eyewitness testimony and human sexuality. Given such diversity, it is not surprising that psychology has become a popular field of study for many undergraduates.

At a basic level, psychology students come to understand and appreciate the many factors that influence and motivate human behaviour. Psychology students develop a number of valuable skill-sets, including the ability to formulate evidence-based arguments, critically evaluate research findings, and identify important ethical issues. Such skills are highly valued by employers in both the public and private sector.
