Psychology involves the scientific study of behaviour and experience, including thinking, feeling and action. Psychology teaches us how we learn languages, how we function in community and how to promote healthy development across the lifespan, among other topics.
In the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology program at our Waterloo campus, you'll learn about the roles that personality, social factors, external environments, cultural differences, societal context and biological factors have in influencing these behaviours and processes.
