Specialist Award in Psychology
Specialist Award In Psychology
Despite their interest in the subject, students of psychology often find it difficult to answer this basic question in a clear, concise and specific manner. Some might say that psychology is a study of "human behaviour"; some might say it is a study of the "mind or brain"; others might say that it is a study of personality and “what motivates people to do what they do".
All are partly correct, but each of these answers is emphasising a different aspect of psychology.
Firstly, psychology is a science.
Every science has an "object of analysis"; for example, a nuclear scientist studies the structure and dynamics of nuclear energy; or a chemical scientist studies the structure, behaviour and interaction of chemicals.
In the discipline of psychology, scientists often disagree upon what the object of their study is.
A broad definition of psychology however would be "the study of human behaviour".
