What do we learn in Psychology?
- Contrary to popular belief, we do not learn how to read minds.
- What we really do is study and validate human behavior!
Which area should I specialize in?
- There are 5 broad areas in Psychology, including an Applied field. (see image below)
- You should expose yourself to all areas before committing yourself to any of them
- You could explore by attending lab tours, where research assistants (RA) introduces you to their area of research.
- Alternatively, you could join as an RA yourself. Keep a look-out for recruitment emails from professors. Having a good grade and interest in that field helps 🙂
- Likewise, you should attend our academic and career talks to find out which career path interests you 🙂
