Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) Full-time
Developed and awarded by The University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, US
Studying about Psychology
Provides an understanding of basic human processes of sensation, perception, learning, cognition, development and personality along with principles of social psychology, clinical psychology, and behavioural neuroscience.
Knowledge of psychological principles and of scientific methods for evaluating theories and research in the social and behavioural sciences is essential in our rapidly changing society.
The Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) programme is designed to provide students with foundational skills in statistics and scientific methods that are essential for subsequent coursework in psychology.
The additional requirements for the psychology major are intended to introduce students to the great breadth of psychology as a scientific discipline. They are ttherefore required to complete courses in four complementary areas of psychology.
Why study Psychology?
Studying the mind and behaviour of human beings is invaluable in promoting effective interactions and relationships with people. This knowledge is also especially useful in attending to human needs and problems, such as in crisis intervention.
The undergraduate degree in psychology does not make the student a psychologist or professional counsellor. It does, however, provide them with an excellent liberal arts background and is valuable for almost any type of work that focused on people.
Students who major in psychology are well prepared for graduate study in psychology and related mental health fields, medicine, education, law, or business, and for any career that requires a good understanding of individual behaviour and interpersonal relations.
