We offer 3- and 4-year Bachelor Degree programs with majors in Psychology, as well as a number of combined and concurrent programs and a minor.  See the university calendar for details on our programs, courses and regulations.

Our new Curriculum

Beginning in September 2020 we are offering a new curriculum for all undergraduate programs.

  • Courses are now one semester long or 0.5 FCE (except Psychology 1100 and 4901)
  • Required second and third year Psychology courses will focus on biological, cognitive, social, developmental, and individual psychology, plus research methods and statistics
  • Labs and tutorials have been added to deepen learning
  • More flexibility in upper year Psychology electives and new 4th-year capstone projects
  • New courses including Foundations of Mental Health, Adult Development, Indigenous Mental Health, Perception and Perceptual Processes, and an Advanced Seminar

Who moves to the new curriculum?

  • Students entering their first or second year of study
  • Students who haven’t completed PSYC 2101 or 1.0 FCE of any of the Psychology Core Groups courses

Degree audits have been updated to reflect these changes.
