    Course Summary

    At its heart, the study of Psychology is the study of the mind. It looks at human and animal thought, emotion and motivation. Psychologists work to refine our understanding of how we think, how we feel and how we behave, both individually and in groups. Psychology can be approached from the perspective of simple scientific understanding or from the perspective of support and care. It might include the study of experimental psychology, clinical psychology, developmental psychology and more.

    The BSc degrees offered by the University of Prince Edward Island’s Psychology Department all focus on learning why and how people behave, how different psychological problems develop and more importantly how they can be treated. You’ll learn how stress harms people and how to help them manage it. You’ll explore how people’s minds change over time, how they form memories, how they perceive the world around them, and how they make decisions. 

    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.
