Undergraduate Research

 

Providing a helping hand to those in need is a key component of Concordia’s mission. In that same spirit, the psychology major at Concordia is a combination of academic knowledge and practical application. Students develop exceptional research and critical thinking skills guided by mentor-teachers with broad experience in the field. With a curriculum based on the solid empirical foundation of psychology, students graduate with the tools, knowledge and experience to be agents of positive change in their communities and beyond.
