|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 also covers the whole of Psychology, but emphasizes the applied side (e.g. clinical and health psychology). It includes a Practicum course where one day a week is spent in a community setting (hospital, school, community center, etc.) that provides support for at risk populations. It is especially interesting for those interested in a career as a therapist, counsellor or social worker.
