These courses are designed to complement our other core skills courses (e.g., research methods, statistical methods, laboratory methods) found outside of this category system.
Our programs in Psychology provide an opportunity to study typical thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Students interested in psychological well-being and disorders may want to consider the Mental Health Studies program instead. Students with a strong interest in the biological basis of thoughts, feelings, and behaviours may want to consider a program in Neuroscience.
We offer the following program options in Psychology:
|Psychology Specialist||Our Specialist programs are research-intensive programs.|
|Psychology Specialist Co-op||The Co-op option offers an experiential learning supplement to the Specialist programs.|
|Psychology Major||Our Major programs require less research-intensive coursework while focusing more on how to be a skilled consumer of psychological research.|
|Psychology Minor||Our Minor program in Psychology allows students to explore our field with considerably less intensity than the Specialist and Major program.|
Note: Programs in Psychology and Mental Health Studies cannot be combined.

UTSC also offers a Double Degree Program in Psychology and English. Students in this five-year program graduate with two degrees: an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology.
