Description: Psychology involves the scientific study of behaviour and experience, including thinking, feeling and action. We study psychology to learn about human behaviour: how languages are learned, why some people crave narcotics or how to promote healthy child development.

The Honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) Psychology program at our Waterloo campus is structured to ensure that students are exposed to the breadth of content that exists within both psychology and neuroscience, while still permitting sufficient flexibility for students to pursue their own particular interests.
