Overview

The Psychology Department at St. Thomas covers all of the traditional areas of Psychology, and alternative areas as well, giving students a thorough foundation in our dynamic and broad discipline.

Each year, some of our students present their original research at the Science Atlantic Conference (which is held at a different university in Atlantic Canada annually).

Studying Psychology provides students with excellent skills in analytical thinking, research processes, and problem solving. In addition, studying Psychology enhances skills regarding interactions and relations with people with different backgrounds and experiences. Psychology students develop the abilities to work well as part of a team and as independent thinkers. The study of Psychology heightens our understanding of ourselves as well as the social world around us.

An education in Psychology from St. Thomas prepares graduates well for a career in the field; however, it also equips grads with skills and knowledge that serve them well in an extensive list of diverse areas. Psychology graduates often move into careers in clinical psychology, research, academia, law, business, human resources, speech language pathology and audiology, counselling, medicine, school psychology, education, and social work, to name only a few.
