PSYC Major

The Psychology Undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide a broad core education in the science of psychology with some emphasis on cognition. We aim for a contemporary world-class education with courses in areas where modern psychological research is most active, such as Perception and Action and Cognitive Neuroscience.

The program particularly emphasises research and science training. Starting from level (year) 1, courses in Statistics and Research Methods are required until level 3, over four semesters. These courses are project-based, and tailored for psychology. A senior thesis to complete the degree program is required, in which students are supervised on a one-to-one basis by members of staff, on individal research projects.

In addition to field-specific courses, the program requires basic science subjects such as calculus and biology as well as acquisition of skills in computing. Students are also encouraged to attend elective courses in a broad range of subjects such as fine arts and foreign languages.

Below is a list of requirements for completion of the undergraduate psychology degree program. Courses are listed in level (year) groups as a proposed plan over four years. Most higher level courses have prerequisites from lower levels.
