Overview

Bachelor of Science Psychology (Hons)

Psychology is a branch of science that deals with the study of the mind. It encompasses various aspects that determine how people feel, think, and act, such as biological influences, environmental or contextual factors, and social pressures.

The Bachelor of Science, Psychology (Hons) programme at GCU, equips students to gain a deeper understanding of psychology to understand other people so that they can guide people and offer them an insight into their actions.

Since psychology is both an applied and academic field it has major implications on individuals, and also society as a whole. At GCU, students are taught to use objective, scientific methods, so that they can understand, explain, and even predict human behaviour to the best of their abilities.

Psychology’s primary application is in the field of mental health, where the graduates can use the knowledge acquired through the undergraduate programme at GCU to help their patients manage, or overcome the symptoms of psychological illness.
