Introductory Psychology classes
Our undergraduate program offers a broad range of courses that address the fascinating subject matter of psychology. Introductory courses (PSYC 100A and 100B) give an overview of the many topics that comprise the field of psychology and offer opportunity to participate in research projects happening in our department. The introductory courses are pre-requisites for other courses within the department. These are popular electives for students from many fields of study and form the foundation for majors and honours degrees in psychology.
Advanced psychology classes
As you move beyond PSYC 100A and 100B, you can delve more deeply into the topics that caught your interest in those introductory courses. Some undergraduate majors complete their degree and then advance to graduate school in psychology or to advanced education in fields such as medicine or law; other students springboard from their Bachelor's degree directly to the workforce.
Why take psychology?
Whether you opt to pursue psychology as a major or just take a few elective courses along your path to degree completion, the knowledge gained in psychology courses is applicable to many careers where people interact and work together to make decisions. Find yourself in a UVic Psychology Course!
