Why study Computational Science and Psychology?
Would you like to model the creation and retrieval of memories? Or simulate how certain drugs interact with the body and brain? What if you could monitor social behaviours across the population and over time?
Computational Science is an interdisciplinary field which uses skills from mathematics and information technology to tackle real-world scientific problems which can only be solved through computation.
Psychology is the scientific study of how people behave, think and feel. Processing data and creating complex models is essential to understanding brain function, memory, higher cognition, social behaviour and many other areas of this broad discipline.
In this dual major, you will learn to construct realistic mathematical models and simulations, perform quantitative analysis of scientific problems using computers, and develop skills to solve real challenges in psychology.
