Study Psychology

To study psychology is to study our most powerful tool, the human mind, and to understand how we perceive and make sense of the world. Psychology helps us more accurately position the individual within the collective. It displaces assumptions, misconceptions or popular opinions and installs evidence-based knowledge. What drives us? What stifles us? Psychology aims to make sense of who we really are.
