Interested in Psychology?

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)

Fields2

  • 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 🙂
