|Description:||Western’s Psychology students explore the biological, social, and psychological roots of human and animal behaviour under the guidance of world-class researchers in state-of-the-art research facilities. Psychologists examine behaviour from a variety of different perspectives ranging from how our brain controls our behaviour (behavioural cognitive neuroscience) to how we interact in small groups (social psychology). We look at how we perceive, process and remember information (cognitive psychology; sensation and perception) and how behaviour changes over our lifetime (developmental psychology). We examine individual differences in behaviour (personality psychology), and apply our knowledge of psychology to understanding behaviour in the workplace (industrial/organizational psychology).The Department of Psychology at Western offers a comprehensive undergraduate program providing courses in all the different branches of psychology. Some of these programs can be completed as either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. The Honors Specialization BSc focuses on biological foundations of behavior, with courses primarily in the areas of neuroscience, cognition, sensation, and perception.|
