Psychology is the study of behaviour and its biological basis. It seeks to understand the behaviour of living organisms through scientific research and to use the accumulated knowledge to promote the welfare of humans and other animals.

The Major programs in psychology at Memorial University of Newfoundland provide students with a solid background in the science of psychology, and culminate with small classes offering direct, hands-on experience in conducting research in a wide variety of areas.

We offer three major programs:

B.A. in Psychology
B.Sc. in Psychology
B.Sc. in Behavioural Neuroscience

We also offer a minor program.
