The Department of Psychology stands in solidarity with all racialized people in our communities in calling out and condemning anti-Black racism locally and around the world.

Psychology for the Common Good: Community Panel

April 8th at 8:30am EST on Zoom (link below)

The King’s and broader community are invited to attend the Psychology for the Common Good Community Panel on April 8th at 8:30am. Students in Professor Penner’s Psychology for the Common Good: Creating Research-Based Applications course will be presenting their projects.

This year, student teams designed:

  • a roadmap to local mental health resources for transition-aged youth, and 
  • a social media campaign to reduce stigma towards individuals experiencing homelessness and addiction.

Following the student presentations, there will be a Q&A session. Student projects will be evaluated by a community panel and panel members will award the Agnes Penner Prize to the project with the greatest potential to benefit society. Many past projects have been implemented in the community and have won external awards, including the Canadian Mental Health Association Champion of Mental Health Award.

Psychology is the scientific study of brain and behaviour.

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.
