New Programs

Applied Psychology Option and Neuroscience Option

We offer an Applied Psychology Option for students interested in focusing on courses most relevant to applying psychological principles to assist in the effective management of human behaviour. This option can be obtained with any of our degrees (BA and BSc, with or without honours).

This new option complements and builds upon the success of our BSc Psychology with a Neuroscience Option and a Bsc Honours in Psychology with Neuroscience Option we intiiated in 2009. We are proud to be one of the only schools in the Atlantic provinces offering these very popular options.

Look under Programs under CONTENTS at the left for more information about these undergraduate options.  Note that making the decision to do one of these options does not have to be made until after your first, or even second year of study.
