Description:This course of study is offered within the Associate of Arts degree program, which prepares students to complete a BA at an affiliated university. Okanagan College offers first- and second-year university transfer courses in Psychology.

Psychology is the organized study of human behavior and mental processes. It tries to answer the kind of important questions we have always asked of each other and of ourselves. Questions such as: Why do we do what we do, think what we think, feel what we feel? Why do we dream? Why do we strive and struggle, hope and despair, love and hate? What does it mean to be human? What is personality? How does personality develop, and how can it become disordered? Why are we torn by anxieties and depression, by strange obsessions and peculiar desires, by delusions and madness? Can we cure these problems? What is psychotherapy? What is the human brain, and how does it work? What influence do sleep and nutrition, happiness and reproduction, drugs and addictions have on our brain and behavior? How do we understand the complex social world in which we forge the meaning of our existence? Why do social problems such as racism, sexism, ageism, and class oppression continue to plague society?
