    Course Summary

    Psychology is the study of the mind, the emotions, and the motivating factors behind animal and human intelligence. Psychologists seek to understand how we think, feel and behave, either form the perspective of simple scientific understanding or from the perspective of care and support. It includes experimental psychology, developmental psychology and clinical psychology, and many more specialties as well.

    Brandon University’s Psychology department is one of the largest in the school, and is one of the most heavily attended.

    Psychology students will learn why and how people behave differently in groups than as individuals, how different psychological problems develop and how they can be treated, how stress harms people and how it can be managed, how people’s minds change over time, how memories are formed and stored, how people solve problems and reason, and how the brain and other biological systems influence how we think, feel and behave.

By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
