“Sit down and tell me how it’s making you feel”: that’s what most people expect from psychologist and what everybody assumes a Psychology degree implies. But it goes way beyond this cliché.
Psychology is a subdiscipline of Social Sciences, where you focus on everything related to the human psyche and how it’s affected by society, culture, and the contemporary era. And don't even get me started of how the subconscious affects our behaviour!

Combining old doctrines with current events, you will understand the ways in which history tends to repeat itself, why that girl in you class is mad at you, and that, generally, people are quite predictable.

Psychology has a multitude of subfields, such as:

• Clinical Psychology
• Cognitive and Perceptual Psychology
• Counselling
• Developmental Psychology (name drop: Freud!)
• Educational Psychology
• Experimental Psychology
• Forensic Psychology

Whatever specialisations you wish to follow, remember: even if neurotics build castles in the sky and psychotics live in them, at the end, psychologists collect the rent."
