The major in psychological studies includes a set of psychology units with an applied flavour. It is designed for students who wish to complete a major in psychology in conjunction with studies in a number of other areas such as science, social work, sociology, communications, management, marketing or education. At first-year level, the sequences provides a brief coverage of a wide range of human behaviours, including seeing and hearing, sleep and dreaming, learning, remembering, thinking, functioning of the brain and nervous system, language, social interactions, dealing with stress, abnormal behaviours and emotions, with more in-depth coverage of developmental topics. The second and third-year units are geared more towards the applied aspects of psychology.
