Psychology

Psychology is the science that studies behaviour and mental processes. Students who study psychology at the undergraduate level typically survey the discipline broadly, taking core psychology courses covering topics such as development, learning, cognition, sensation and perception, biological bases of behaviour, personality, social psychology, abnormal psychology, research methods in psychology, and psychological assessment.

While the study of psychology at the undergraduate level is necessarily broad, there is a common theme that unites these diverse topics of study, the use of the scientific method. The University of Botswanas psychology program is designed to give students not only a knowledge of these topics, but also an understanding of how this knowledge is scientifically acquired and applied.
