Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts / Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Psychology, General
Description:Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behaviour. It is both a social and a biological science. As a social science, psychology studies humans in interaction with other members of the same species. As a biological science, it regards human beings as the product of evolution and so emphasizes the biological perspective, comparing, and contrasting human behaviour with that of other species.

Psychology has many interdisciplinary aspects. The study of psychological problems often involves knowledge drawn from other disciplines, such as biology, physiology, linguistics, sociology, philosophy, and mathematics. For this reason, a student with varied interests can frequently find a place for these interests in psychology. The essential differences between the honours and the major program are an emphasis on research methodology courses and practice in the honours program, and that higher academic standards are required of honours students. Honours students also have an opportunity to work in small groups closely with staff members. Students may enroll in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science stream.
