Welcome to Psychology!
To guide you through your four-year program, we have put together this guide to remind psychology majors and minors of important information. You can refer back to this guide each year – there’s a lot to remember! This guide can also be found in the brochure given to you when you declared your psychology major.
If you have questions about this guide or your program please talk to your psychology academic advisor or the chair of the psychology program.
- It’s not too early to declare psychology as your major or minor (get the form from the Registrar’s Office and have it signed by the chair of the psychology program).
- There are some considerations when transferring between psychology programs as Grenfell Campus and the St. John’s campus. Contact your academic advisor at Grenfell.
