DescriptionAre you fascinated by human behaviour? Do you want to learn more about why people feel and act the way they do? Psychologists explain, predict, and even modify behaviours. With small class sizes and vibrant, student-focused faculty, our students learn and work in a supportive atmosphere that encourages real-world experience. With an active student society and one of the largest program enrollments on campus, our students quickly become a part of the Saint Mary’s community. Our department is also recognized as the preeminent leader in Industrial/ Organizational Psychology east of Montreal and is home to some of the only Law Psychology professors in the Maritimes.

Students have the option to major in psychology through the Science degree program (B.Sc.) or the Arts degree program (B.A.) at Saint Mary’s. The Major requirements in both programs are the same, and students may take the same psychology courses through either program. However, the B.A. and B.Sc. programs have differing required and elective courses as outlined in the academic calendar. Both degrees offer optional co-op opportunities for students. Please see the program website for honours and co-op program information.
