Students of Psychology are invited to explore many facets of human experience, from development, learning, and memory to social interactions and the physiological underpinnings of these phenomena. Study in Psychology offers a more thorough understanding of oneself and others.
In Psychology, we explore psychological theory and research relevant to questions of culture, gender, effective learning and thinking, brain processes in learning, cognitive and emotional development, and interpersonal relationships and communication.
Why major in Psychology at CMU?
At CMU, students are offered a holistic approach to studying psychology. This approach is evident in the interdisciplinary flavour of the program, in the commitment of professors to helping students work towards academic and professional goals, and in the way students are encouraged to integrate matters of faith into their learning. While gaining a firm grounding in key psychological theories and principles, students are also given the opportunity to apply their learning both in the classroom and in supervised practicum placements.
