Bachelor of Science Honours (B.Sc. Honours) - Psychology

The Psychology B.Sc. Honours degree program was designed for students who are interested in pursuing graduate training in science areas of psychology (e.g., cognitive, neuropsychological, and biological influences on behaviour.)

Students must have completed at least 60 credit units before applying for admission to the B.Sc. Honours degree program in Psychology.  Formal admission requires application for admission made on a form available at the Undergraduate Student Office, College of Arts and Science.  Each year the department of Psychology normally admits up to 30 students into the Honours program.  These admissions are done on a competitive basis and averages below 78% (for all courses taken in Psychology) would not normally be competitive for the program.  B.Sc. Honours students should have a faculty supervisor at the time that they apply to the Honours Program.  Admission to the capstone thesis project course (PSY 473.6) is by permission of the department's Undergraduate Committee and PSY 473.6 course instructors, who assess whether the student has completed sufficient coursework.

No more than 6 credit units of PSY courses can be used in requirements 1-5.
