Psychology

A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.

Psychology is the study of human behavior and the human mind. As a science, it only began in the late nineteenth century with the groundbreaking studies of psychologists such as Sigmund Freud. Psychology has several sub-disciplines that explore emotional and cognitive conditions and states.

Russia (Russian: Россия) is by far the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. The former State Committee for Higher Education in Russia financed 240 universities, academies and institutes, making Russia a solid country to study in.
