Psychology is also one of the more popular subjects to study as an undergraduate student, which means that most universities offer psychology courses. Psychology at the Mount is different than it can be at other schools, for three big reasons:

  • Personalized education

Every student in our program has an academic advisor. Your advisor will answer your questions about course selection, degree requirements, graduate study opportunities and more. Book an appointment today!

  • Program flexibility

You can choose to complete a major in Psychology in either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science. The main difference between the two options is the subject in which you complete a minor. Find out more information on the psychology minor.

  • Hands-on research

Employers and graduate programs are looking for people with experience outside of the traditional lecture setting. We offer hands on experience with research through our higher-level classes, directed studies, and honours thesis projects. Find out more about our students’ research here.
