Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Psychology and Visual Arts

The Psychology and Visual Arts combined degree is offered jointly through our Department of Psychology and School of Creative Arts. Through this combined program, students can study topics in both areas.

Program Description
A psychology degree can help you answer such questions as what makes people think and act the way they do? What causes people to interact with each other in functional and dysfunctional ways? To what extent do our personality and environment influence our behaviour? 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.
Combining this with Visual Arts, we offer in-depth studio practices and art history combined with exhibition opportunities and exposure to the cultural institutions of Windsor and Detroit. Our program includes courses in drawing, painting, print media, photography, sculpture, BioArt, film production and integrated media (digital imaging, sound and video). Individual studio space is available to you during Year 4.
