Why do we make the choices we do? How can we understand experiences of racism, or of depression? What motivates individuals to engage in acts of atrocity or heroism? What influences our interactions, and our attractions to one another? What makes a marriage work? What factors influence job satisfaction? How should the mind/soul vs body debate influence the way we approach treatment of mental illnesses?
If these questions captivate you, of if they make you curious, consider studying Psychology at CMU.
While a psychology degree is a strong launching point for a variety of careers, it is also a practical degree that can be used in everyday life.
Completing your psychology degree at CMU means getting personal support from your professors, an emphasis on practical learning, and an integration of psychology with other programs of study.
Some psychology grads put their skills to work directly out of CMU. They are employed by school divisions, work in trauma and crisis centers, act as child behaviour consultants, serve in community ministry, and a variety of other professions.
A psychology degree from CMU explores 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.
