Description: Psychology is the study of human behaviour and mental processes with the goal of understanding why people think, feel and behave in the ways that they do. In our Psychology program, you’ll learn about the roles that genetics, personality, social factors, external environments, cultural differences and societal context have in influencing these behaviours and processes. During your undergrad, you will develop a solid understanding of the principles of human behaviour and be able to apply these principles in a responsible, engaged way.

In Brantford, the opportunity to work one-on-one with research-active faculty and community will allow to apply in class knowledge to real-world experiences. We also offer a direct-entry Forensic Psychology Specialization, which provides a broad overview of psychology with an added focus on the role of psychology in the criminal justice system.
