Social-Personality Psychology from Queen's University introduces students to the study of how one’s thoughts and behaviours are influenced by characteristics of oneself and others, both real and imagined.


Social-Personality Psychology from Queen's University focuses mostly on adults, and in contrast to clinical psychology, we typically study what is normal or the average person’s response rather than what is abnormal. Much of social-personality psychology shares some overlap with cognitive psychology except that our stimuli are social objects like oneself or other people.

  • be prepared for a variety of positions not just in academia but also government and industry.
