Course Description

Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. Registered psychologists use scientific knowledge of human behaviour to assist individuals who are experiencing mental disorders, relationship problems, learning difficulties, addiction and eating disorders, among other things. Psychologists may work in a specific area of psychology such as cognition, neuroscience, or social and developmental behaviour. Psychology graduates have many career choices, using their knowledge of human behaviour to work in a range of fields, including health promotion, marketing, human resources, coaching, policy, and community services. Graduates also work as researchers to provide greater understanding about how people think, feel and react to situations, and to develop new strategies to improve psychological functioning.
