Note: Students must pass a Stage I Statistics course to major in Psychology.

Stage I courses

Stage I courses aim to give both a broad introduction to the various fields of emphasis within modern psychology and an understanding of the scientific method as it is applied to these fields. Even if students complete only one of the introductory courses, they should have a good idea of the content and methods of Psychology.

Two Stage I courses, PSYCH 108 and PSYCH 109 must be passed in order to proceed to Stage II.

Doing a double major with Psychology

If you choose to do a double major in your BSc we recommend the following subjects to complement Psychology: Anthropological Science, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, Exercise Sciences, Geography, Pharmacology, Physics, Physiology and Statistics.
