Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Psychology

Massey’s Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) will help you explore how the brain works, and understand how we think, behave and make decisions.

With a Massey BA (Psychology) you will explore the thoughts, feelings and actions of individuals and groups in a social and cultural context.

Psychology will help you make sense of the human impact on the world in which we live. 

At Massey, you’ll learn about the natural, social and biological sides as well as research methods and applications of psychology.

Psychology combines:

  • natural science, focusing on perception, cognition, learning and the biological bases of behaviour;
  • social science, dealing with emotions, individual differences, behaviour and relationships and the wider social context.

You will ask questions such as:

  • How do people perceive, learn, think, develop, behave and relate to each other?
  • How does the structure of the brain affect behaviour?
  • What makes people different from each other?
  • How does being in groups affect people’s behaviours; how do social groups affect what we do?
  • How do factors like culture, gender, poverty and mental illness affect the way we think and behave?

A psychology degree will equip you with valuable transferable skills including research, analysis, communication, problem-solving and interpersonal skills.
