|Description:||In psychology we ask why and how people do the things they do. You will apply scientific principles to explore human behaviour such as our desires, impulses, actions, and emotions. University of New Brunswick Saint John faculty members conduct cutting edge research in areas such as criminal justice, forensic psychology, addictions, psychopharmacology, inter-personal relations and well-being, lie detection, animal learning and human development and perception. In your first year, you will take two introductory psychology courses that will provide you with an overview of major topics such as the biological basis of behaviour, personality development, and abnormal psychology.
Honours students are required to choose courses from three main areas of study: biological/cognitive basis of behaviour, social/personality behaviour, and clinical/applied psychology.
