BSc Psychology

Psychology is the field of study that helps us to understand the world in which we live. We study people’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour as individuals, as members of small groups like the family and as members of larger groups like Jamaicans or Caribbean people. Our programme recognizes that people’s thoughts, feelings and actions both shape and are shaped by their surroundings and so we include various areas of psychological study that cover these different viewpoints. By understanding the person both from within and as influenced by external factors, we are better able to analyze, explain, and predict behaviour. Psychology therefore, is extremely applicable to helping alleviate social problems.
