Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour – our individual characteristics and abilities, how we act in social situations, how our brain works, and how our experiences and biology interact to produce normal and abnormal behavior. Psychology has applications to many areas of life, including relationships, work, and health. In studying psychology, students learn to ask important questions about behaviour and how to answer them. How can a psychologist help autistic children? Where in the brain are memories stored? What influences us more, situations or personality? Why are some students motivated to work hard at school while others don't try at all? for more information please select psychology from the banner above.
The convenience of being able to study psychology by distance education was what initially drew me to UNE. But the experiences I had as a student were what kept me here through my undergraduate degree and through the PhD. Throughout my time here, I received an enormous amount of encouragement and support from the psychology academics (who probably believed in me more than I believed in myself!). Their efforts to make learning material memorable and inspiring, and to make students feel valued, made studying a very enjoyable experience. As a postgraduate student, I was provided with outstanding training in research, several teaching opportunities, and the opportunity to travel overseas for psychology conferences. I feel very lucky.
