Psychology is the scientific investigation of mental processes (thinking, remembering, feeling, etc.) and behavior. Psychology lies in the center of the academic pursuits of the university because of its strong connections with other scholarly areas.

Psychology is not only an academic discipline, but also a profession. There are both academic psychologists, who engage in teaching and research, and practicing psychologists, who apply psychological knowledge in clinics, businesses, and other settings.
