Psychology (B.S.)


What will I learn?

Undergraduate training offered by the Department of Psychology serves several related purposes. For the science major and the liberal arts major, the study of psychology provides an opportunity to learn the scientific approach to the study of behaviour which will include material helpful in increasing self-understanding and insight into the behaviour of others. For students preparing for medicine, law, education, nursing, business, and other professions, psychology provides important basic knowledge useful in these vocations. For those planning to pursue graduate study in psychology, the undergraduate program establishes a sound foundation. Psychology-related employment for graduates with a bachelor’s degree has increased in recent years. Such employment, of course, depends on the personal characteristics of the individual, on the special qualifications and training of the individual, and particularly on job opportunity.
