The Degree in Psychology trains professionals with the scientific knowledge required to understand, interpret, analyse and explain human behaviour by applying the fundamental skills and abilities needed to make assessments and work in individual and social areas, with the aim of promoting and improving health and quality of life. This includes knowledge of psychological processes, stages in evolutional development, the biological foundations of human behaviour and psychological functions, as well as its psychosocial principles. Furthermore, students are taught about the different research methods and techniques involved in data analysis, as well as the main psychological methods involved in psychological assessment, diagnosis and intervention that are used in diverse fields.
