Honours Bachelor of Arts in Social Psychology

How do people come to be who they are? How do people think about, influence and relate to one another? How do individuals experience their social realities? These are the broad questions that social psychology strives to answer. Among the themes that social psychology students explore are self-presentation and impression management, identity, emotions, social interaction, conformity and obedience, deviance and labeling, and collective action and social movements.

Hons.B.A.Honours Bachelor of Arts in Social Psychology

How do people come to be who they are? How do people think about, influence and relate to one another? How do individuals experience their social realities? These are the broad questions that social psychology strives to answer. Among the themes that social psychology students explore are self-presentation and impression management, identity, emotions, social interaction, conformity and obedience, deviance and labeling, and collective action and social movements.

Since Social Psychology concerns the study of human behaviour, there are job opportunities for social psychology majors in virtually every type of employment setting, including educational institutions, non-profit organizations, corporations, government, and hospitals. Careers can include teaching, research, counselling (not just career counselling, but also mental health, crisis counselling etc.), occupational therapy, community organizing, management, human resources, labour relations, conflict resolution, marketing, policy analysis, strategic planning, correctional services, voluntary services, etc.

The Social Psychology Program provides preparation for professional programs. Graduates may be eligible for some interdisciplinary MA programs. Students must research the graduate school requirements and ensure that they include requisite courses in their program.
