Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) Psychology Major/Minor

Undergraduate Students can obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree with Major or Minor Focus in Psychology.

The discipline of Psychology is normally associated with the social sciences, the biological sciences, and the health professions. Specialization in Psychology at Guelph is available as a B.A. honours program major, a B.A. honours program major (co-op), and as an honours specialization in the B.SC. program (described in the schedule of studies for B.SC. programs).

Through its different undergraduate programs, the Psychology Department attempts to provide

  1. a broad general education emphasizing psychological theory and methodology, with an empirical basis in course work (e.g. experiments and projects);
  2. an appropriate background in psychology for those who leave the University with an undergraduate degree to embark on careers in related areas (e.g. social services); and
  3. a sound preparation for graduate study in psychology. Students intending to apply for admission to graduate programs in Psychology are advised to refer to the Graduate Studies Advisory Note.

A cumulative average of at least 70% in all course attempts in Psychology is required to enter or continue in the Honours Psychology program major in semesters 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
