Wondering why you should chose UNBC for your degree? We talk to some of our current and former students about their experiences here and why they think this is a great place to study! (Link opens in new window.)

Psychology is the study of behaviour and mental processes. It focuses on identification of fundamental mechanisms and processes that regulate the behaviour and mental processes of organisms. The goal of the undergraduate Psychology program at the University of Northern British Columbia is to provide students with advanced knowledge in the substantive areas of psychology, emphasizing areas of particular need and relevance to psychological research directed at applied issues and human development. In addition, the program will provide training adequate to ensure students' competitiveness for advanced graduate study in Psychology.

The total for the B.Sc. in Psychology is 122 credit hours. For more information, please consult the current online calendar via the "Undergraduate Program" link to the left.
