Program Summary

Psychologists study the mechanisms that underlie our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. They examine a diverse range of topics, such as how we think and learn, how we interact with others and how we can promote healthy development and wellness. This is accomplished by conducting research so that the knowledge gained can help us to better understand the human mind, enhance well-being and performance, and generate additional research questions.

All of our undergraduate Psychology programs provide opportunities to explore psychology’s major areas within the context of an active and diverse research environment. Our honours programs offer six concentrations for students wishing to focus on one of these major areas.

  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Forensic Psychology
  • Health Psychology
  • Organizational Psychology
  • Social and Personality Psychology

As well, we offer a stream in Mental Health and Well-Being. We also offer a minor in Human Resources Management.

The insights you gain from studying psychology will serve you throughout your life, in virtually any career. In addition to the Honours, and Combined Honours programs within the BA Psychology, Psychology is also available as a minor or as a major within the Bachelor of Science Honours program.
