Study a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at King's

The Psychology degree at King's critically engages in the assumptions of human nature through exploring personal motivation, cognition, behavioral and mental challenges, and society.

"And men go abroad to admire the height of the mountains, the mighty waves of the sea, the broad tides of the rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, and yet pass over the mystery of themselves without a thought." -St. Augustine

Psychology studies what motivates people to do the things they do and how society affects human thought, learning, and action. Students learn to critically engage assumptions about human nature and understand how these assumptions are important in our modern world and in the light of Christian faith.

Explore cognition and the activities of the mind and examine how physical disorders in the structural and chemical make-up of the brain can lead to behavioural and mental illness challenges. This degree is an excellent choice for those who want to enter professional programs such as law and education.
