The Department of Psychology offers four-year programs of study leading to a BA (Honours) Psychology, a BA with Major 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.

Students wishing to major in Psychology must apply to declare their major. Declare or Change Major forms are available in the Registrar's Office and online at brocku.ca/registrar/forms. The Department believes that a broadly-based liberal arts and science background is appropriate in conjunction with a major in Psychology. It is required that Honours students acquire some background in other disciplines as part of their undergraduate program by taking elective courses in areas outside of Psychology. Students wishing to pursue an Honours (Research) degree must complete a PSYC 4F91 Application. Applications are available in the Department of Psychology.

Students wishing to take PSYC 3F40 and 3P39 require a minimum 77 percent major average. Students wishing to take PSYC 4F91, 4P93 and 4P95 require a minimum 80 percent major average.

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 Major and a Pass BA are a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average.

Psychology Co-op Program (Honours and 4 Year BA with 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).

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 their major average to 70 percent, the student may be readmitted only if approved by the Co-op Admission Committee.

All students in the Co-operative Education program are required to read, sign and adhere to the terms of the Student Regulations Waiver and Co-op Student Manual (brocku.ca/co-op/current-students/co-op-student-manuals) as articulated by the Co-op Programs Office. In addition, eligibility to continue in the co-op option is based on the student's major average and non-major average, and the ability to demonstrate the motivation and potential to pursue a professional career.

Each four-month co-operative education work term must be registered. Once students are registered in a co-op work term, they are expected to fulfill their commitment. If the placement accepted is for more than one four-month work term, students are committed to complete all terms. Students may not withdraw from or terminate a work term without permission from the Director, Co-op Program Office.

The Psychology Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have completed a four-year degree (Honours or BA with Major) and who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience.

Program Notes
  1. Prior to graduation, students completing a four-year degree (Honours or BA with Major) must choose 8.0 credits from disciplines outside of Psychology. As well, students completing a Pass BA must choose 5.0 credits from disciplines outside of Psychology.
