Administrative Assistants Joanne Boekestyn, Linda Di Raddo, Linda Pidduck 905-688-5550, extension 5050 Mackenzie Chown B327 psyc.brocku.ca 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. 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. 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 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 degree must complete a PSYC 4F91 Application. Applications are available in the Department of Psychology. See the Psychology Major's Manual at psyc.brocku.ca/undergrad for more information.

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 Major) and who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience.
