tell me about your experiences.
not sure why, i guess it's a nice balance of like abstract thinking, science and just learning good employable skills like writing reports/working with stats etc. i also got to combine it with french so for me that was a bonus.
i've nearly finished my first year, it's been fairly easy as you'd expect, very general.
i'd say the only thing you need to be wary/aware of is the fact that stats and biological stuff is a big part of psychology - it's a science, y'know?
so yeah, to summarise i've enjoyed it and i think it's got a nice balance of different aspects of science/maths/philosophy...in yr second and third year you are able to concentrate on more specific subjects within psych so i'm looking forward that too.
dunno if this helps, but there you go.
i was thinking of teaching myself the background to psychology over the summer so that i might be 'considered an educated, useful member of today's complex society'
