Psychology programs emphasize the scientific method and its application to the study of behaviour and thought processes in humans and animals. A comprehensive selection of diverse courses in all areas of psychology are taught by outstanding faculty, many of whom conduct leading-edge research in areas such as child development, social behaviour, cognition, perception, personality and the biological basis of behaviour. Students can engage in ongoing research and/or applied field work under the supervision of faculty members.

As a Social Sciences student, you might consider issues such as health care resourcing in Economics, study how decisions regarding health care are made by governments in Political Science or examine how different cultures approach the senior members of their society through studies in Anthropology. And much more!

Students receive expert practical training in acting, balanced with a thorough exploration of dramatic history, theory and literature in this longstanding program.

Specialist – this is the most intensive option, consisting of 9 to 14 courses over the credits of your 20 credit undergraduate degree

Minor – this is the least intensive option, with just 4 credits of subject area focus

Find the Right Program At the end of your first year, you will choose your program(s), which means that your first year is an excellent opportunity to explore the full breadth of offerings at UTM. In addition to choosing a subject area, you will chose from one of three ways to study that subject.

Major – this option consists of 6 to 8 credits of subject area focus, and gives you the opportunity to mix and match your programs within your 20-credit undergraduate degree.

The choice is yours: you won’t be restricted to just the courses in your program. In fact, we encourage students to take courses outside of their main area(s) of study.
