The minor in Psychology is designed for students who want to gain knowledge that will enhance their understanding of human behaviour. Topics such as lifespan development, theories of personality, abnormal behaviour, cognition, and social and biological psychology can be explored. Students will develop critical thinking skills, an understanding of ethics in research and an appreciation for the ambiguity of psychological explanations in understanding human behaviour. For those interested in a career in social services, human resources, marketing, teaching, medical services or administrative positions in a variety of fields, a minor in Psychology is an excellent addition to their program.
