"A question to myself have I become!" - Augustine
A degree in psychology allows students, in a modern academic setting, to gain insight into the deep and intriguing question: what is the human self? Psychology, whether as theory or practice, is put into historical and cultural context, while critically engaging assumptions about human nature and how these are of consequence in our modern world and in relation to Christian faith commitments.
Our small classrooms and strong emphasis on personalized instruction guide students to use and evaluate psychological research, and opportunities are provided to gain experience in the practical applications of psychology through volunteering, lab exercises and field trips. The King's Psychology Club also plays an active role in creating opportunities for those interested in psychology and gaining experience outside of the classroom.
A Bachelor of Arts in Psychology can be beneficial for career opportunities in human services, rehabilitation, early childhood services, or mental health, and can set you up for Graduate studies in counselling, clinical psychology, or research. A Psychology degree is also an excellent pre-professional studies degree for pursuing numerous possible professions, whether law, teaching, medicine, physical therapies, speech language pathology, and others.
Students interested in psychology field research have the opportunity to conduct their own projects under the supervision of a professor as part of King's Community Engaged Research initiative.
