Overview

The psychology program encourages you to think critically about human and non-human behaviour, and science in general. You will learn about the history of psychology and explore how the brain contributes to human and non-human behaviour. Most psychology courses offered at Algoma U fall under one of three categories:

  • social and personality psychology
  • clinical psychology
  • neuropsychology

In your fourth- year, you will have the opportunity to complete an honours thesis, conduct original research and present your findings at our annual institutional conference. Students have the opportunity to work as research assistants conducting cutting edge research alongside faculty.

In addition to the standard courses on methodology that are required for a psychology degree, there are courses on a wide range of topics in psychology. The majority of courses fall under one of two broadly-based categories: those that focus on the social bases of behaviour, and those that focus on the biological bases of behaviour. While it is widely known that psychology can involve the identification of, and counselling for, abnormal thoughts and behaviours, there are many other areas of psychology that you can explore.

Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree concentrates on math and science courses. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in psychology take more hands-on lab, research and statistics classes.

Summer Employment Program

Each summer, the Psychology Department hires students as Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants through the Summer Employment Program. Such positions provide students with valuable experience working in their field.
