Program Information

School:Douglas College
Faculty:Humanities & Social Sciences
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Applied Psychology
Description:The Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology – Honours is an excellent option if you are interested in pursuing graduate work in psychology or another discipline. The honours degree has the same basic structure as the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology but concentrates more on third- and fourth-year Psychology coursework. The honours research thesis gives you the opportunity to develop and carry out supervised, independent research.

If you intend to take the honours program, you should first apply to the regular Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology after completing 60 credits of undergraduate coursework (typically an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science). Then, you should attend a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology – Honours info session or contact the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology Coordinator for advising. Once you are in your final (fourth) academic year (Fall, Winter), you will then be able to apply to the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology – Honours program.
