8.25.1 Program Information

Psychology is a discipline that examines questions concerning behaviour and mental processes. Cognitive processes such as perceiving, learning, re­membering, thinking, talking, and social interactions as well as the biolog­ical basis for behaviour and human development are among the issues explored. Psychology on the one hand helps us understand human and animal behav­iour, but on the other also provides insights that can help and benefit indi­viduals and society. A degree program is also offered in the Faculty of Science.

For entry, continuation and graduation requirements for the General Degree, Advanced Degree and Honours Degree, see Section 3: Basic Faculty Regulations for the B.A. General, Advanced and Honours Degree Programs.
