Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Psychology is a dynamic, exciting field of study that examines phenomena related to human perception and action, memory and cognition, thinking and intelligence, social relationships and emotions, the brain and behaviour, motivation, development—just to name a few!
The Psychology Program at Huron offers four B.A. modules of study, with heavy focus on basic foundational research knowledge in Psychology. Our emphasis on research skill development starts in the first year and continues throughout the program. Core research courses focus on the scholarly study of Psychology in various subfields (Learning and Motivation, Cognition, Developmental and Social), with supplementary elective courses in many diverse topics such as Neuropsychology, Theories of Personality, Health Psychology, Persuasion, Biopsychology, Infancy, and Behaviour Modification, among many others.
