    Course Summary

    Psychology is all about coming to understand how humans and other animals behave, make decisions and experience emotion. Psychological research is at the core of many fields of human endeavour, and that research depends just as much on naturalistic observation and statistical analysis as it does on laboratory or field experimentation.

    The University of Toronto’s BSc degree in Psychology can lead you to a number of specialist sub-fields within the main discipline. These include Social Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Personality Psychology, Perception, Human and Animal Learning, Developmental Psychology, Computational or Cognitive Neuroscience or Cognitive Psychology.

    There are six different psychology programs at the BSc or BA level for you to choose from:

    • Psychology Research Specialist - Thesis (Science Program)
    • Psychology Specialist (Science Program)
    • Psychology Major (Science Program)
    • Environment & Behaviour Minor (Science Program)
    • Psychology Minor (Science Program)
    • Psychology of Economics and Management Certificate

    Your choice should reflect both your personal interests and your ideal career path.

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Toronto’s Learning and Teaching policy includes a range of initiatives and programs to foster best practices. These include the Teaching Stream Pedagogical Grant (TSPG),

    Undergraduate Course Development Fund (UCDF), First-Year Learning Communities (FLC), First-Year Seminars, Research Opportunity Program, Research Excursion Program and International Course Module Program (ICM). The coursework itself is delivered primarily through lectures and seminars, though there will also be frequent skills workshops and special events.

    Career Possibilities

    A BSc degree in Psychology will not immediately qualify you to begin a career as a professional psychologist. That will require a graduate level degree at the minimum. However, many psychology graduates do go directly into the job market. Any roles which depend on a keen understanding of the human mind and people’s motivations and decision making processes could be filled by a graduate with a major or minor in psychology.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree.

     Applicants must typically have completed a university preparatory program at a senior secondary school, or the international equivalent. Great weight will be given to the GPA earned by your final year.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
