DescriptionPsychologists study the brain, behaviour, and mental processes. If you've ever wondered why people act the way they do, or how you might help people change their thoughts and behaviours for the better, psychology is an ideal field of study for you.

Acadia offers a Neuroscience Option, focusing on the study of the nervous system, and an Applied Option, focusing on the effective management of human behaviour. These options involve pursuing a selection of targeted upper-year courses in these areas, which can provide solid preparation for careers in the health sciences, and in applied psychology fields such as clinical psychology and organizational counselling.
