Description: The UVic Department of Psychology has launched an exciting new undergraduate curriculum. As explained on the Psychology Streams page, the new curriculum is organized into four streams or areas of concentration. The new curriculum has many advantages over the old one: A more coherent structure, better alignment with other universities, less complexity, and more flexibility. We have eliminated grade minima (except for the Honours program) and reduced the specificity of the requirements for courses outside of Psychology. It will be easier for students to plan and complete a degree in psychology under the new curriculum than under the old (see Program Requirements). As explained on the Transitions page, current majors can stay with the old program with certain adjustments that will make it easier to complete (e.g., elimination of grade minima).
