    Course Summary

     A BA in Developmental Psychology from the University of Windsor will give you a solid background in psychology and its underlying scientific components, as well as a deep understanding of child, adolescent and adult developmental psychology.

     In this course, you will study modern theories of the mind, of human emotion and of the reasons people behave the way they do. You’ll be able to pick a specialty within developmental psychology, and learn to apply this knowledge to help individual patients and advice seekers. You will also learn the research and experimentation techniques you would need to pursue your academic career to the MA, MSc or PhD levels.

    You’ll learn in small, intimate classrooms and experience the kind of personalised learning that only UWindsor can offer. You’ll learn under staff with years of clinical psychology experience, as well as doing work alongside respected researchers in the field. You’ll also attend guest lectures and other special events.

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.
