    I'm a psychology student in Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-akoko. Ondo state, Nigeria. Psychology as a course is a study of behaviours and mental processes which has broad and different field and has human as its raw data. I like the course because psychologists work anywhere that human exist being society or country. I prefer psychology in term of study to law because psychologists play important roles in conflicts resolution. Lawyers settle disputes and conflicts but psychologists tackle the causes and then settle the disputes and conflicts.

    It is never too late to go back to college to do what ever it is that you want to do. I am 32 and I am in college studying criminal justice. I am currently in psychology and I am enjoying the class. I would start calling ifferent college and checking on their courses and the benefits of each college, do not jump into the first program you see or find, I did that and I ended up having to switch colleges during the middle of my degree program due to some things happening at the first university I went to. Good luck to you and feel free to emal me if you have any questions or nedd any advice!
