DESCRIPTION

Introduction to the Major in Psychology
Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and underlying mental phenomena. The field encompasses research, through which students learn fundamental features about human and animal behavior, and practice, in which that knowledge is applied to help solve human problems. The Psychology major provides students with a high-quality, well-rounded, challenging education. It encourages analytical and critical thinking, the careful appraisal of evidence and the application of various technical skills. The program tackles a wide range of theoretical issues and practical techniques in psychology and serves as an advantageous springboard for future postgraduate training and a wide range of employment opportunities.

What You Will Study
At the start of their major, psychology students learn about the foundations of the discipline, laboratory work and statistics. As students progress through the program, they take courses which provide conceptual knowledge of the core domains in psychology, including developmental psychology, biopsychology, research methods and psychometrics, and personality theories. Senior-level courses offer students the opportunity to conduct original research in the form of an empirical project, as well as to select from a variety of electives in pure and applied areas of psychology, allowing students to define their areas of interest. In addition, students are required to take three compulsory courses in psychopathology, social and cognitive sciences.
