Psychology is the Science of Mind and Behaviour; this means that it a broad subject that tries to understand human behaviour from the biological explanations of how the brain works to the social understanding of how we interact and adapt with our environment, or change cognitively as we get older.  

In practice, Psychology can mean different things to different people. We might be interested in why someone is happy or lonely; why the brain remembers some things from when we were five but forgets the shopping list we need today; why we choose to buy the things we do; how politicians gain our trust ... or not! 

Psychology is all of these things and much more  - that’s what makes it so fascinating – there is something in the subject for everyone.
