Psychology involves the scientific study of behaviour and experience, including thinking, feeling and action. We study pscyhology to learn about human behaviour: how languages are learned, why some people crave narcotics, or how to promoste healthy child development.
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Psychology program at our Waterloo campus is structured to ensure that students are exposed to the breadth of content that exists within both psychology and neuroscience, while still permitting sufficient flexibility for students to pursue their own particular interests.
You can earn a BSc in our Comprehensive or Psychology and Neuroscience streams.

In senior courses, students receive hands-on, practical experience with cognitive and behavioural neuroscience research.
