Bachelor of Arts or Science in Psychology

Psychology is the study of individual behavior in human and non-human animals and how the brain contributes to these behaviors. For example, the field of psychology investigates how and why people are susceptible to visual illusions, why individuals will follow group behaviors, and how non-human animals (such as birds and bats) find their food and communicate with others. These and other interesting topics are discussed in the wide variety of courses offered at Algoma.Our psychology program provides many different courses, enabling students to select the courses that are most applicable to their interests and future goals. Many of our psychology graduates have furthered their studies at the Master’s and Ph.D. levels, have been accepted into teaching programs, and have gained employment in their fields of interest. This has been in part due to our 4th year thesis course; this is an independent study course which allows the student to select a topic of their choice, conduct an extensive review of the background literature pertaining to that topic, design their own experiment, collect and analyze data, and present their research at the Algoma University Annual Psychology Thesis Conference. This experience at Algoma University differs from other universities because at Algoma U, you get to select the topic and design your own study, whereas at larger institutions you are typically “assigned to” a study already underway or planned in a research laboratory. At Algoma University, the thesis experience is thoroughly enjoyed by our students, provides... [-]
