Curriculum

The Introductory Course with course number Psyc 2510 and the course number Psyc 2530 Statistics I are open to incoming first, second and third year students. Those courses with course numbers Psyc 2520, 2531 and Psyc 3525 are normally open to second and third year psychology major students who have the prerequisites.  All of these are “core courses” and are offered in French and English. Those with a course number in the 3000’s and some in the 4000’s are elective courses and are normally open to second, third and fourth year psychology majors who have the prerequisites. About two-thirds of the elective courses offered in psychology are taught in English with the other third being taught in French.

The Honours Thesis (Psyc 4000) is limited to fourth year psychology specialized honours students with a strong academic record and the approval of the department.

The Individual Studies course (Psyc 4100) is open to third and fourth year psychology majors   who have the prerequisites. These courses are conducted on a one-to-one basis between the students and the instructor.

The Senior Seminar (Psyc 4230) is mandatory for all Honours students who are admitted into  fourth year. Its primary purpose is to further develop writing and oral presentation skills.

The Applied Research Practicum (Psyc 4260) is limited to majors with the prerequisites and the approval of the department. These placements are intended for students who seek research experience in health-care settings.

Some courses in psychology are “cross-listed” with courses in other disciplines, or in the multidisciplinary program in General Education (e.g., Social Science or Natural Science).  A student may take a “cross-listed” course and have it count as both a psychology course and a General Education requirement.
