Psychology At University Of Fort Hare

Psychology At University Of Fort Hare, Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. Psychology as a discipline embraces all aspects of the human experience – from the functions of the brain cell to social conflicts within or between societies, from child development to care for the aged, from daily life challenges such as family, education and work to mental health problems. You may choose to study psychology because it is an interesting subject or you may decide to study psychology because you want to become a psychologist. In any case, we are convinced that our Department in Alice and our Department in East London (E) will offer you interesting undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
