Undergraduate Program

Psychology is of fundamental relevance to our society. The discipline addresses important questions about the very nature of human behaviour: How do we remember and process information? How are gender and sexuality related to identity? How are addictions and brain chemistry related? How do we cope with stress in a changing world? In this program, students learn about the human mind, behaviour and emotion, as well as how we think, feel and reason. Students also delve into experimental and clinical research methodologies. The department offers a Psyhchology BA (Honours) degree.
