    Course Summary

    The University of Alberta offers psychology programs as BAs, BSc Specialisations and BSc Honours degrees. 

    Psychology is a fascinating field, and one in which many rewarding careers can be founded. You might enjoy studying psychology if you enjoy learning about how people learn, forget, perceive, think and feel. As you study, you’ll learn a great deal about cognitive development, motivation and behaviour, perception and more. Perhaps just as importantly, though, you’ll come to understand the maths, physics and biology which makes a modern understanding of psychology possible. 

    You can remain a generalist throughout your education. However, you can also select modules with an eye towards specialisation in one or more areas as well. In fact, with the wide array of minors and double majors also available to you, you can personalise your degree to an amazing level. Optional modules should be chosen to align with both your personal interests and passions as well as with your chosen career path.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
