The expectation is that incoming students will have an undergraduate Honour’s degree (with written thesis completed) in Psychology to ensure sufficient breadth of knowledge and training in Psychology before entering the MA program. This also prevents a student from needing to do many makeup courses to gather breadth of knowledge in Psychology. This is important because breadth of background knowledge in Psychology is a requirement when seeking registration later in the College of Psychologists in Ontario. Highly qualified candidates who do not have an undergraduate Honour’s degree in Psychology may still apply to the CCAP program. However, it is their responsibility to clearly communicate, within their application materials, why and how their previous training, knowledge, and skills warrant equivalent consideration compared to applicants who hold an undergraduate Honour’s degree in psychology. Admission decisions will be made based on information provided in the application file when review of applications begins. Please note: The CCAP area as a group will decide whether or not to review a file in these circumstances. Please do not email individual faculty or the Admissions Coordinator to ask whether or not your file will be reviewed; as stated- this is determined by the area as a group when all completed files are reviewed.
