|Description:||We offer a wide array of courses in all areas of Psychology including: personality, physiological psychology, cognition, motivation, child and adult development, social psychology and psychopathology. Additional requirements include the history of psychology, psychological statistics and the methodology of experimental psychology. Students interested in applied psychology may also take courses in clinical and health psychology, in addition to a practicum course that allows for supervised work experience outside the classroom. Newly renovated experimental facilities allow advanced students to perform their own research under the direct, individual supervision of a faculty member. Several professors in the Psychology department have received awards for teaching excellence.
This program focuses on the physiological aspects of Psychology: the workings of the human brain and its relationship to human behaviour. It includes a number of physiological psychology, biology and biochemistry courses. The strong science component makes this program an excellent preparation towards graduate school or medicine.
