Psychology

Psychology

Psychology draws on a range of phenomena, including remembering and forgetting, thinking, learning, problem solving, communicating, as well as our emotions and social interactions. It allows us to examine how we respond to the world around us, providing valuable insights into how we can interact with the world more effectively and safely. Students gain powerful insights into the human mind and behaviour, which open a variety of employment opportunities in counselling, psychology, human resources, management, and social and community services.

Available as a major or minor.
