Psychologist's study mental processes and human behavior.

  • They observe, interpret and record how people relate to one another and the environment.
  • They look for patterns to understand and predict behavior.
  • They often concentrate on individual behavior and the beliefs and feelings that influence their actions.
  • As a psychologist, you can help increase understanding between individuals, groups, organizations and cultures.

Program highlights

  • We provide courses covering various topics, from developmental psychology to courses on prejudice and death and dying.
