Mission Statement

The psychology department aims to stimulate interest and understanding in mind and behaviour whilst simultaneously developing a range of key skills and critical thinking in our students. In the pursuit of psychological knowledge our students will acquire an understanding of spiritual, moral, ethical, social and cultural issues. Our students will embrace diversity through developing an awareness of the breath of human behaviour and the need for tolerance and sensitivity in dealing with each other.
