Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Psychology

Psychology is the study of how we feel, behave, perceive, think, learn, and remember. 

It looks at what motivates us, how we develop, and how we act in groups and societies. 

 

Discovering  Psychology:

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. 

It is a discipline that examines how we feel, perceive, think, learn, and remember; what motivates us and how we act in groups and societies.

The Psychology Department at St. Thomas covers all of the traditional areas of Psychology and the alternative regions, giving students a thorough foundation in our dynamic and broad discipline.

Each year, some of our students present their original research at the Science Atlantic Conference (held at a different university in Atlantic Canada annually).

 

Critical and Transferable Skills:

Studying Psychology provides students with excellent skills in analytical thinkingresearch processes, and problem-solving.

In addition, studying Psychology enhances skills regarding interactions and relations with people with different backgrounds and experiences.

Psychology students develop the ability to work well as part of a team and as independent thinkers.

The study of Psychology heightens our understanding of ourselves and the social world around us.
