Program and courses BSc Psychology

Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. It’s a study about people: about who we are, how we think and feel, and why we do or don't make certain decisions. This program has a flexible and innovative curriculum that gives you the freedom to combine a major and a minor from and specialize in two out of the nine major fields of Psychology.

Structure of the program

You will acquire a solid foundation in various fields of Psychology, preparing you for a diverse range of professional fields, including health and social services, mental health, organizational leadership and management, community and public relations, education, program development and facilitation, and social science research.
