    Course Summary

    Psychology is primarily focused on understanding how and why people think, feel and behave. In addition to understanding the human experience subjectively, there are objective specialties. Some psychologists seek to understand the thought processes behind human behaviour, while others seek to understand the biological functions of the brain and endocrine systems which actually produce thought and emotion on a physical level.  

    The University of New Brunswick’s BA program in psychology looks at everything from cognitive neuroscience to cultural psychology, from human sexuality, gender and laterality to child development, and from addictive behaviours to autism spectrum disorders. 

    This program is available as a 4 year Honours BA, as a Major in Psychology and as a Minor. Note that if you elect to take the Honours BA in Psychology, there will be a thesis requirement for graduation. This of course opens up the possibility of pursuing psychology at a higher level, in either a Masters or a PhD program.
