Department of Psychology | Mount Allison

At its core, psychology is the quest to understand why people do what they do.

The better our understanding of human behaviour, the better equipped we are as individuals and as a society to help each person reach their full potential and improve their quality of life.

Psychology students develop their knowledge by using scientific methods to analyze behaviour, employing careful observation and experimentation to develop and test theories. The results are theories, backed up by facts, that further our comprehension of the human mind.

At Mount Allison, psychology can be pursued either as a Science discipline or an Arts discipline.
