Administrative Assistants Joanne Boekestyn, Linda Pidduck 905-688-5550, extensions 3542, 3543 Mackenzie Chown B326 http://www.psyc.brocku.ca/ The Department of Psychology offers four-year programs of study leading to a BA (Honours) in Psychology, a BA with a Major in Psychology and a three-year BA Pass degree program. Programs are designed to provide students with a broad introduction to the field of psychology including research methodology, psychological theory and application. In addition, the 20-credit degree programs give students the opportunity to prepare for admission to professional and advanced degree training in a variety of fields. Students interested in pursuing graduate study specifically in psychology should complete the Honours program. The requirements for graduation with a BA (Honours) are a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirements for a BA with a Major and a Pass BA are a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average. Students wishing to major in Psychology must apply to declare their major. Declaration of major forms are available in the Registrar's Office and on-line at https://brocku.ca/registrar/forms/index.html. The Department believes that a broadly based liberal arts and science background is appropriate in conjunction with a major in Psychology. It is recommended that Honours students acquire some background in other disciplines as part of their undergraduate program. Students wishing to pursue a four-year degree (Honours and 4 Year BA with a Major) must be admitted to year 4 after completing 15 credits. Applications are available in the Office of the Registrar and on-line at https://brocku.ca/registrar/forms/index.html. See the Psychology Major's Manual for more information. Psychology Co-op Program (Honours and 4 Year BA with a Major) The Psychology Co-op program combines academic and work terms over a five-year period. Students spend two years in an academic setting studying the core concepts of psychology prior to taking the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Psychology Co-op students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see the Schedule of Fees). Students admitted to the Psychology Co-op program must follow the Psychology Co-op program schedule. Failure to adhere to the schedule may result in removal from the Psychology Co-op program. Eligibility to continue is based on the student's major average and non-major average. A student with a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average will be permitted to continue. A student with a major average lower than 70 percent will not be permitted to continue in the Psychology Co-op program. If a student subsequently raises his/her major average to 70 percent, the student may be readmitted only if approved by the Co-op Admission Committee. The Psychology Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have completed a four-year degree (Honours or BA with a Major) and who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience. Collaborative Study in Policing and Criminal Justice The Collaborative Studies in Policing and Criminal Justice program involves courses offered through Brock and Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technology. This four-year program combines training in policing and criminal justice with an education in a chosen academic discipline, which may be either Psychology, Political Science or Sociology. For students majoring in Psychology, this four-year program leads to a BA with Major in Psychology and a diploma in Police Foundations from Niagara College. The program caters to the increasing demand in society for professionals who possess both solid applied skills and the substantive knowledge needed to apply them to the areas of policing and criminal justice. This would ordinarily involve attending college after gaining a university degree, but the Brock and Niagara program combines the two in a single integrated package. Consult the Collaborative Studies in Policing and Criminal Justice listing for further details.
