|Description:||The 3-yr BA Psychology program was designed with a more applied focus than the research-oriented focus of our Honours BA PNB programs offering a series of courses tailored specifically for this program – child development, abnormal psychology, personality, social psychology, learning and measuring behaviour, adolescent psychology, human sexuality, aging, attitudes and persuasion, positive psychology, and intergroup relations. The types of entry-level jobs for which undergraduate psychology majors are typically prepared are those that use "people skills" (e.g., communicating with and relating to individuals from diverse backgrounds as is required for case workers, counsellor’s aides, and in sales, marketing, personnel, and management positions), analytical skills (e.g., figuring out why a certain problem occurs and how to minimize or eliminate it), writing skills (e.g., writing a logically developed report), and research skills (e.g., using statistics, tables, and graphs to analyze problems and communicate relevant findings). These skills can be used in a wide variety of work settings such as human services, business, criminal justice, health and recreation, and education.
