Why do we think, feel and behave the way we do? It’s the primary question of psychology, a fascinating scientific discipline that generates deep insights into the workings of our brains, bodies and inner selves. Drawing on a wide range of theoretical perspectives, major concepts and research methods, psychology students explore the connection between mental health and brain functioning, memory and decision-making, and the perception of sights, sounds and other sensations. The field of psychology also explores issues such as lifespan development, the roles of exercise and diet in a healthy lifestyle, psychological disorders and their treatment, as well as gender, sexuality, culture, diversity and many more.
This program selects students on the basis of academic achievement/grades only. Additional non-academic requirements are not required for admission consideration.
