Description: Psychology focuses on the behaviour of human beings and animals, with particular emphasis on the individual rather than the group. Psychology courses span the various areas of psychology, including the study of development, personality, social and abnormal behaviour, learning, cognition, perception and the role of the brain and psychological mechanisms in behaviour. Students are introduced to methods used in psychological research, including experimentation in the laboratory and field, naturalistic observation, and the use of statistical methods in interpreting data.

The department of psychology offers research-based B.Sc. programs that focus on the experimental and biological approaches to the discipline rather than on a clinical approach to psychology often found at other universities.
