School:King's University College
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Psychology, General
Description:The discipline of Psychology spans perhaps the broadest range of any academic discipline. Psychologists can be involved in examining brain processes, animal behaviour, human sexuality, language acquisition, cognitive processes and learning, creativity, consciousness, interpersonal relationships and psychological problems.

The Department of Psychology strives to educate students in the theories, methods, evidence base, and practical applications of Psychological Science. We aim to help students grow in their verbal and written communication skills, critical thinking ability, ability to understand, produce, and use research, and awareness of human strengths and challenges. Our faculty members maintain vigorous programs of research that contribute to scientific knowledge and guide practical applications of psychology. This scholarship provides a context for mentoring students in research and it enriches our teaching by adding breadth and depth to the courses we offer. We are committed to the principles of holistic education, open inquiry, scientific rigour, and social justice.
