Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Psychology and Criminology

The Psychology and Criminology combined program is offered jointly through our Department of Psychology and Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology. This combined program gives students the opportunity to explore facets of both programs.

Program Description
Our Psychology courses cover such topics as: memory, motivation, and decision making; how the attitudes and actions of other people influence us; the origins and treatment of mental illness; human development from birth to death; and the way our cultural backgrounds shape the way we think and behave.
As well, our Criminology program has the distinct virtue of being situated in an interdisciplinary department and, thus, uniquely provides students with both breadth and depth of knowledge. It has produced many distinguished graduates.    
Criminology systematically examines criminal activity, legal issues, policing, regulation, the criminal justice system, and security as major factors in society. It focuses on the causes, consequences, and control of crimes, illegalities and wrongdoings, criminal law, policing, prosecution, sentencing, punishment, and deviance.
