Ultimate Benefits of Studying Psychology

Friday, 14 September 2012 0 comments

Here are some skills that you will get by studying the psychology. We are providing this content only to create the awareness of the psychology. Most probably we are not giving you the advice.

1. You Learn To See The World Differently

Studying psychology, you learn a lot of topics that you can relate to your own life. This leads to reflective thinking and self-insights. When you gain awareness of yourself, you’re more in control of who you are and what you want to be. Furthermore, you also gain awareness about others and maybe why they behave the way they do. This also gives you a more open minded views about things and sometimes take the blames off yourself.

2. You Meet A lot Of Caring People

I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seemed like a lot of students studying psychology were more friendlier and understanding. I think it may have to do with people going into the field to help others, but you do really meet a lot of people with similar intentions. And somehow, you do really bond with people on that closer level. None the less, the atmosphere in a psychology class is a lot nicer.

3. Research Methods

A core aspect of studying psychology is to learn the research methods. In research methods class, you learn what kind of methods are used to conduct studies and the flaws or problems associated with each. You are also taught about how to review articles, how to look up authentic sources of information, and how to write your own research paper. In the research methods class I took, we had to pair up in groups and conduct a study together, collecting actual data from class, and writing a full report. Above this are also opportunities to volunteer in research labs where you can further apply these skills to a real/supervised study.

Beyond research methods are courses in behavioral statistics. In statistics course, you learn how to construct a study so that you can achieve some kind of real effect /significance.

I personally believe that having a lot of knowledge in research methods and statistics is the most important for psychology students. Furthermore, when applying to grad school, your grades in these related courses are usually one of the most important.

4. Critical Thinking Skills

This skill sort of stems from learning about research methods. When you acquire critical thinking skills, you really do doubt all sources of information you acquire. You fully understand the different steps of conducting studies, the problems that can occur at any step, and how each methods are problematic in their own ways. Hence, you do really become a careful consumer of information.

5. You Know Almost A lot About Everything

Psychology is one of the most broadest field. There are psychology courses on almost any topics you can think of. And taking a degree in psychology, the program encourages you to take a few courses from each area. This obviously leads you to know a lot about different things. However, to fully specialize, you will usually have to go to grad school.
