Program Information

School:Mount Royal University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Psychology, General
Description:An Honours degree provides a more extensive exposure to the knowledge and practice of the discipline. In addition to the core courses required to obtain a BA in Psychology, Honours students take several psychology courses that non-Honours students do not. Honours students will also complete an Honours thesis. The thesis provides an opportunity for the student to engage in research within a specific area of Psychology, apply the statistical and research methods skills they have acquired in previous courses, and provides the student with the opportunity to write a formal research report under the direct supervision of her/his supervisor. Completion of an Honours degree indicates that you have engaged in some form of independent learning, under the guidance of a Psychology faculty supervisor, over and above that required by regular degree-related course work.
