Biology - Psychology
Humans and other animals have more in common than you might think. From neurological systems to patterns of behaviour, this four year Subject of Specialization Plan fuses core elements from Biology and Psychology and allows considerable opportunity for upper year specialization and independent study. With an emphasis on cross-disciplinary interaction and integration, the "BioPsych" SSP explores both commonalities and uniquely human features of brain, behaviour and cognition.
Psychology is the study of mental processes and behaviour. Psychologists study relationships between brain function, behaviour, and environment. As a discipline, psychology explores a wide range of topics, including cognition, neuroscience, social influence, mental health, development, relationships, sensation, and perception, as well as the influence of factors such as gender and culture on these areas. Home to 35 labs, psychology students have the opportunity to work alongside faculty researchers to gain valuable research training.
