About this program

Psychology

Psychologists study the psychological, biological, and social bases of how we think, feel, and behave—and they use this knowledge to solve problems in the real world. As scientists, psychologists conduct research in many settings including universities, hospitals, government, schools, and corporations and apply the knowledge gained from research to solve personal, social, and practical problems.

The courses and research of our faculty members span the breath of Psychology. We offer courses in a wide range of areas including addictions, child development, counseling, consciousness, creativity, diversity, education, law, thinking and perceiving, mental health, personality, psychological disorders, religion, sexuality, social issues, work and organizations. Several of these courses are unique to King’s.

The Department of Psychology at King’s offers students several degree options, as well as a variety of courses in psychology for students majoring in other disciplines.

Our Honors Specialization program prepares students for graduate work in psychology and our Major and Specialization modules give students a strong background for careers or further education in a variety of areas, such as health, education, law, and business.
