Department of Psychology


Welcome to the Department of Psychology

Psychology delves into what makes people tick. Psychologists study the relationship between mind and behaviour by investigating the nature of thought processes and behaviours in humans and other animals.

A major in psychology will help you develop skills in analyzing and interpreting complex material, particularly as it relates to behaviour. You will learn theories of how people interpret the world and act in it, as well as theories of human behaviour. As a psychology student, you will learn from those at the forefront of psychological research. Our faculty members are regularly published in the top journals and make an ongoing contribution to an ever-advancing field.

Room — multi-site campus hubs designed to invite students to step away from the stress of study and research to relax their minds and connect with one another.

The Science of Birdsong

Thursday, March 30, 2023 - 7-9 p.m. (MST)

Birdsong is a window into Nature’s soul, and an enduring mystery to science. How do songbirds make their music? Who are they singing to? And why do they bother? This interactive lecture teaches the foundations of birdsong science through examples, demonstrations, and stories from a career in birdsong research. Once we understand the basics, we’ll get into the weird stuff, like duets, soft song, and the dawn chorus.
