What will I learn?

Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. It’s a study about people: about whom we are, how we think and feel, and why we do or don't make certain decisions. This program has a flexible and innovative curriculum that gives you the freedom to combine a major and a minor from and specialize in two out of the nine major fields of Psychology.

You will acquire a solid foundation in various fields of Psychology, preparing you for a diverse range of professional fields, including health and social services, mental health, organizational leadership and management, community and public relations, education, program development and facilitation, and social science research. Build up expertise in the areas of your choice: design your own study program by choosing a major in the second year, followed by a subsequent minor in your third year.
