Psychology is a sub-discipline of Social Sciences; it is the scientific study of the human mind and how it affects his health and behaviour. It studies the conscious and unconscious human phenomena and also one's feelings and thoughts. The study curriculum covers topics like human development, social behaviour, cognitive processes, biopsychology, counselling psychology and clinical behaviour. The main goals of psychology are to describe, explain, predict and change human behaviour and mental processes.

Psychology is considered to be multi-disciplinary as it draws from a number of other disciplines like Sociology and Biology and its principles and concepts can be applied to a large number of fields. The discipline provides a variety of explanations to account for human behaviour and the potential to apply this knowledge to real-world situations.
