Department of Psychology

Psychology is considered both an arts discipline (covering such topics as social psychology and personality) and a science discipline (covering such topics as visual perception and the neurological processes involved in memory formation). Regardless of a student’s focus, the fundamental question that the discipline of psychology attempts to answer is, “Why do people do what they do?” At a basic level, psychology students come to understand and appreciate the many factors that influence and motivate human behaviour. They develop a number of valuable skill-sets, including the ability to formulate evidence-based arguments, and critically evaluate research findings.
