Literally meaning “the study of the mind,” psychology focuses on mental processes and behavior in humans. It’s the science of how people think, feel, act, and interact with their world. There are a number of specialized fields within psychological science, including child psychology, educational psychology, sports psychology, social psychology, comparative psychology, and more. Clinical psychology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
