Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

What is Psychology?

Psychology involves the scientific study of behaviour and experience, including thinking, feeling and action. We study psychology to learn about human behaviour, including: individual variations in sensation, how languages are learned, and why some people crave narcotics.
