Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behavior. It is both a social and a biological science.

As a social science, psychology studies social interactions. As a biological science, it regards humans as the product of evolution and so studies them in biological perspective, comparing and contrasting human behavior with that of other species.

The major objectives of psychological study are to reduce the discrepancy between theory and fact and to provide better answers about why man thinks and behaves as he does.

Courses being offered in the Psychology Program introduce the student to an understanding of the basic core of psychological knowledge theory and method, regardless of questions of practical application.
