Department Of Psychology
Psychology is a science that seeks to understand behavior and mental processes and a profession that applies empirical knowledge to improve the lives of people. Psychologists study the intersection of two critical relationships - one between brain function and behavior, and other between the environment and behavior. Because it is a scientific discipline, psychologists follow scientific methods, using careful observation, experimentation, and analysis.
