Notes

  1. The basic skills requirements indicated in this course sequence are required for the Honours Bachelor of Arts with Major in Psychology. Students enroled in the Bachelor of Social Sciences with Major in Psychology are required to take ENG1100 and ENG1120 as compulsory courses, while the 6 optional course units which include PHI courses are to be replaced by elective course units.
  2. The courses AHL 1100 and AHL 1900 have variable topics. Students may take those courses twice.
  3. If enroled in an Honours degree, students must add a second study module to this program. It can be a second major or a minor, and can be a discipline offered by another faculty. The course units of the second study module will replace the same number of elective course units. Go to Make changes to your undergraduate program for more information.
