Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Red Deer College

Red Deer College

www.rdc.ab.ca
Psychology is the scientific study of thought, emotion, and behaviour with a focus on the dynamic interplay of biology and environment. Psychology is unique in that it is considered both an arts discipline (covering such topics as social psychology and personality) and a science discipline (covering such topics as visual perception and the neurological processes involved in memory formation). Students will acquire knowledge of various areas of specialization within Psychology (e.g., social, cognitive, developmental, clinical, neuro/biological, health); embedded within the program are themes of wellness and creative problem-solving. Experiential learning such as community service and applied research provide valuable hands-on exposure to the application of psychology to solve problems and create positive social impact. Research in, and application of, psychology are valued within a wide variety of contexts such as universities, schools, hospitals, clinics, legal professions, corporations, and non-profit organizations. Skills developed by psychology students (e.g., critical thinking, academic writing, research and analysis, the scientific method, interpersonal communication, and emotional intelligence) prepare them for future employment in a wide variety of contexts, as well as for graduate level education in psychology or a related field, or for entry into professional programs (e.g., law and medicine).
