What is Psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes, and includes individual and social, human and animal, normal and abnormal aspects. Most people find psychology intrinsically interesting. Even a little knowledge of psychology is useful in most career paths. Students might consider taking psychology if interested in: becoming a professional psychologist in an applied areas such as clinical psychology, the health services, education or industry; lecturing in psychology in a third-level college; carrying out psychological research in a university or other research centre; or improving their general education by studying an interesting and useful discipline with careers of a more general type in mind, for example, the media, information technology or management.

Examinations

Information on examinations will be posted on the University website in due course. 

Please note that several modules include a compulsory end-of-term Written Examination. As such, you are required to be present in Galway to sit the examination whenever it is scheduled. If your modules include end-of-term Written Examinations, then please do not plan to travel away from Galway during the Examinations period as it will not be possible to reschedule examinations or to set alternative forms of assessment (students who are absent from an examination without an acceptable reason are given a score of zero for that examination).
