    Course Summary

    Psychology is a fascinating field of study. It includes many different ways of observing, analysing and understanding the human mind. It seeks to understand human behaviour and emotions, and to turn that understanding to practical purposes of all kinds. Not only is it the foundation stone of a career in counselling or forensic psychology, it is the core of scientific marketing, HR and personnel management, and so much more besides.

    Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Psychology program offers several separate (but closely linked) degree pathways:

    • A Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology
    • A Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Psychology
    • A Joint B.Sc. in Psychology and Biology

    This program allows you to become involved with the university’s world renowned research output even at the undergraduate level via summer research programs like the Memorial University Career Experience Program and the Student Undergraduate Research Award. Co-operative education options are also open for all Psychology majors.
