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 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 and Well-Being
  • Organizational Psychology
  • Social and Personality Psychology

We also offer a stream in Mental Health and Well-Being.

The insights you will gain from studying psychology will serve you throughout your life, in virtually any career. Psychology is offered as a Bachelor of Science (Honours) program, and as a Bachelor of Arts (Honours), (General) and (Combined Honours) program. A minor in Psychology is also available.
