    What is unique about this program at the U of M?

    The field of psychology is incredibly diverse, encompassing all topics related to human thought and behaviour. The Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba is notable for the breadth of training opportunities that it provides to undergraduate students. As researchers and university teachers, Psychology faculty have expertise across the full range of areas within the discipline of psychological science, including neuroscience, comparative psychology, cognitive science, applied behavioural analysis, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, and social and personality psychology.

    Psychology is also unique in that students can pursue either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree in the discipline. The primary difference between the B.Sc. and B.A. programs in Psychology is in the non-Psychology courses that students must take in the B.Sc. program. The Psychology-specific course requirements are identical for the B.Sc. and B.A. degree programs.
