Additional information

The Psychology sequence provides students with a comprehensive and systematic study of human behaviour. The emphasis is on the dynamic nature of human behaviour and the interaction of biological, social and cultural factors that influence behaviour at all levels and at all stages of the life span. The major establishes a fundamental conceptual foundation dealing with general theoretical approaches to the study of human behaviour and reflect major themes in Psychology. Having a major in psychology is considered desirable in a diverse range of professions, such as Business Management, Marketing, Human Relations, Sales, Advertising, Community Services, Counselling, Health Services, Protective Services, Education, and Graduate Programs. (Please note that this major is not an APAC accredited major in psychology; so this major does not offer a career pathway to become a Psychologist).
