When the Faculty of Psychology was established in 2004, our professors came up with the phrase “exploring the mind and supporting individuals” to represent their shared educational philosophy. This philosophy reflected their strong desire to give students a foundational knowledge of psychology so that they would be able to support the mental and emotional needs of others. The Department of Psychology brings together experts in many branches of the field to teach everything from basics to applied knowledge. The Department of Education and Child Development integrates the study of pedagogy (primary education) into the Faculty’s distinctive approach to providing mental and emotional support through a combination of psychology and disability studies. It is our hope that graduates of this Faculty will use their grounding in psychology to help solve the problems facing contemporary society.
