Program Information

School:Acadia University
Faculty:Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences & Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Psychology, General
Description:Psychologists study the brain, behaviour, and mental processes. If you’ve ever wondered why people act the way they do, or how you might help people change their thoughts and behaviours for the better, psychology is an ideal field of study for you. At Acadia, we want to teach you how to answer your own questions about human behaviour and not just what others have learned about psychology. You will have the opportunity to do hands-on psychological research early in your studies. Class limits of 25 for laboratory courses and 20 for upper-year seminar courses allow you to consider issues in depth, in a small group atmosphere. Our intimate program size allows you to get to know faculty members and fellow students well, and for them to get to know you.
