Department of Psychology


Welcome to the Department of Psychology

Psychology delves into what makes people tick. Psychologists study the relationship between mind and behaviour by investigating the nature of thought processes and behaviours in humans and other animals.

A major in psychology will help you develop skills in analyzing and interpreting complex material, particularly as it relates to behaviour. You will learn theories of how people interpret the world and act in it, as well as theories of human behaviour. As a psychology student, you will learn from those at the forefront of psychological research. Our faculty members are regularly published in the top journals and make an ongoing contribution to an ever-advancing field.

Local company donates unique boardroom table to U of L

The floating meeting room in the University of Lethbridge’s Science Commons proudly boasts a one-of-a-kind boardroom table designed and built by Millwork Innovations.

“We do a lot of work with the University and we have built a fantastic relationship over the years,” says Willy Reger, president of Millwork Innovations. “For us, it’s important to say thank you for the relationship we have had and will continue to have in the future.”

The entire table weighs around a tonne and features two stainless-steel legs, each weighing around 300 kilograms.

Campus Care Parcel program, part of Nourish, goes ahead thanks to innovative distribution solution

Food security issues do not subside during national emergencies, rather they are often enhanced. As society has been forced to function in entirely different ways throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Lethbridge and its partners devised a plan to keep one of their most important initiatives alive – the Spring Campus Care Parcel giveaway.

Now in its 17th year, Campus Care Parcels are an essential service for students at one of the most critical times in the academic calendar. A pandemic situation has only highlighted the need to make sure food security issues are met and students are supported as they wrap up their academic calendar and prepare for final exams.
