Field of Study
Understanding human behaviour is difficult but vital in contemporary Canada. Our society is changing rapidly, becoming more multicultural, more densely populated and more anxious about individual and Canadian identity. New challenges face us in our roles as employees and employers, as family members and citizens. There is a rising demand for individuals, from the shop floor to the office of the chief executive officer, that have people skills requiring more than simple assumptions about human nature.
The Study of Human Behaviour certificate program helps meet these complex needs. Upon completion of the program, you will have developed a systematic understanding of human behaviour as studied through the perspectives of sociology, psychology and related social science disciplines.
You will be required to take five compulsory courses plus two elective courses.
