Different from fields such as anthropology, economics, political science and sociology in social sciences, psychology aims at capturing the generalisations about human’s mental function in general and the behaviours of individuals. Psychology also differs from biology and neuroscience in the way that psychology primarily focuses on the interaction between human’s mental processes and behaviour, far beyond just the biological or neural processes themselves. The Master of Arts in Global Communication launch by the School of Journalism and Communication at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, on the other hand, help people understand what a world looks like from the perspective of other language users.
