Dr. Albert Bandura - Early Academics

Mundare only had one school at the time so Dr. Bandura did all of his schooling in one place. The school had very limited resources, including teachers! Because of these limitations most of the learning was self-directed on the student’s part. Dr. Bandura learned a lot about value and importance of self-direction from this time in his life. After spending a summer working in Alaska after finishing high school Dr. Bandura went to the University of British Columbia. He took an introductory psychology course because it fit into an early timeslot thus allowing him to work in the afternoon and became hooked. He graduated three years later in 1949 with the Bolocan Award in psychology.
