About the Discipline
Our courses at Century focus on psychology as a scientific discipline. Most people think of psychologists as clinical therapists: however, there are also many psychologists who conduct experiments and observations in order to better understand human and animal behaviors, psychological states, and mental processes. Century's psychology courses present and discuss this scientific information.
