Psychology

Do you ever wonder why people behave the way that they do? If yes, you should take our Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. This program will teach you all about the human mind, how it works, how it is impacted by society and much more. Ambrose University is one of only three universities in western Canada to also integrate faith into understanding the human mind. 


Beyond the Classroom

Our BA goes beyond traditional classroom learning and gives you the opportunity to apply what you are learning in life. Ever wonder how psychological research works? We’ll teach you. Learning research techniques early in your educational journey will make you stand out after graduation. We’re one of the few universities that allows undergraduate students to actually conduct research which means you don’t want to miss out on this rare opportunity.

Beyond the Classroom
