Field of Study: Psychology, General
Description: Psychology is an intrinsically interesting field of study encompassing all aspects of human and animal behaviour, with many links to associated disciplines such as biology, sociology, philosophy, and computer science. Aside from offering insight into the ways people think and behave, the Psychology program provides an excellent background of experience that can open a wide variety of career opportunities. It will also provide you with critical thinking and analytical skills.

The Double Major degree program allows students to combine a study of Psychology with another subject. The other subject may be from any discipline in the Faculty of Science (other than Neuroscience), the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Computer Science or the College of Sustainability. A Double Major in Psychology requires 30 credit hours beyond the 1000 level. Psychology may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of credits), or the secondary subject. If the primary subject area is from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the degree granted will be a BA.
