Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior, a broad field that encompasses a variety of sub-disciplines: neurophysiology (brain sciences), cognition (information processing), perceptual processes, learning, social psychology, developmental psychology, health psychology, clinical psychology, as well as key cultural aspects of psychology. Psychology majors also master foundations of research methods and statistical analysis.
