The study of psychology can help people understand themselves as well as others around them, it can help improve interactions with other people and it can provide the ability to cope with pressure and loss. Psychology focuses on the mind and human behavior to accomplish these tasks.
The study of human behavior has many real-world advantages beyond understanding people. It complements other courses of study because it teaches students about human motivation and emotion. This plays into how students interact with classmates and instructors, how they study and how they retain the material. The study of human behavior can also improve decision making skills and communication, all of which helps with everything related to school, social interactions, relationships and job interviews.
