Overview

Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour, and includes the examination of conscious and unconscious phenomena, feeling and thought. This interdisciplinary field crosses social and biological sciences.

As a social science, psychology examines the social nature of human beings and the influence that culture, group membership, and relationships have on individual personality, thought, and behavior. The study of psychological problems often involves knowledge drawn from other disciplines such as biology, physiology, linguistics, sociology, philosophy, and mathematics. Psychology is an excellent field to pursue your interests in human behaviour and the mind.

Please note that the Major Concentration Psychology does not qualify you to practice psychology professionally. If you wish to pursue graduate studies in psychology, and to eventually practice in Quebec, you  are advised to also complete the Minor Concentration Behavioral Science.
