Psychology is one of the largest departments at Brandon University and serves a large percentage of the student body. Each faculty member specializes in a particular area of psychology both for teaching and research purposes. A wide variety of psychology courses are available at Brandon University. These courses represent major topics that psychologists consider important to understand behavior. You may select areas of study that offer opportunities to carry out laboratory or field research under the supervision of a faculty member.
Graduates of organizational psychology courses often proceed to business schools in Masters of Business Administration programs. Graduates with a BA or BSc degree find employment with social service agencies or choose to continue their education in graduate or professional school.

Graduates who choose a career in academic psychology have a wide variety of paths to consider. Research into human social behavior and personality, child development, life span psychology, brain and behavior, and all other areas provide numerous and fascinating challenges.
