What is Psychology?

Psychology is a relatively young social science that concentrates on the study of behavior and mental processes. Psychology provides a solid background in principles and techniques that can enhance work in other social science fields, as well as employment in the fields of education, business, law enforcement, and the health professions. Most career paths in psychology require a bachelor’s degree — and often graduate work.
