A scientific study of behaviour and mental processes
This two-year, 20-course program will give you a biopsychosocial grounding in the study of psychology.
What to expect
Located at our Lansdowne campus, the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Psychology are both 20-course, two-year programs that are also offered part-time for those who need flexibility. You'll have a definite learning path, but with room to explore along the way. During your program, you can choose to take an optional internship or co-op work term.
This program contains a blend of arts and science courses to support the concept of a broad education. Learn more.
In your first year, you'll choose between the Arts option, which includes more arts and humanities courses, and the Science option, which has an emphasis on math and science. English and psychology courses are an integral part of both programs.
In your second year, you'll dig deeper into the study of psychology, looking at biological psychology, research methods and its history. You'll also take additional arts and science courses to support your core studies.
After you have completed at least eight courses, you can choose to complement your associate degree with a work term.
