Psychology

"What is the human self?"

Psychology students learn what motivates people to do the things that they do and how society effects human thought, learning and action. They dig into 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 a variety of behavioural and mental illness challenges.

Perhaps most importantly, psychology graduates learn to critically engage assumptions about human nature, and understand how these assumptions are important in our modern world, and in the light of a Christian faith commitment.

Graduates of the psychology program at King's go on to pursue exciting careers in human services, rehabilitation, early childhood education, mental health related occupations and many more. The degree is also an excellent choice for those seeking to enter professional programs such as architecture, law, and education.

"People go abroad and wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the base compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars...and they pass by themselves without wondering."

- Augustine
