Honours Option:

Students interested in further study and graduate school can augment their knowledge and skills by taking an honours option.

The honours option is taken in addition to the 120 credits required for a BA Psychology or a BAA Psychology degree but can be taken within the degree framework for BSc, Applied Psychology students.

The deadline for the Honours Program for Fall 2016 is March 4, 2016.
