The Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology is ideal for students interested in pursuing a health sciences career.
This is also the Psychology degree program most suited for students who have an interest in neuroscience, particularly at the graduate level.
The BSc is the most interdisciplinary of our psychology degrees, exposing students to biology, chemistry, math, and physics in addition to a broad array of psychology courses.
This degree is also very “hands-on” with students being exposed to lab and research experiences as well as developing technical writing skills and workplace expertise.
The degree was developed in close connection with employers in the field and community partners, and has an applied focus that prepares students for employment upon graduation, for research-focused graduate studies, or for entry into professional programs of study.
Many courses within this program have a lab component. The program takes a systems/ecological approach, recognizing the interrelationships between humans and their environments.
As part of their upper-level coursework, students will take courses across three main topical areas within Psychology:
The degree will be embedded throughout with psychological application, including hands-on lab experience and courses focusing on human interaction with and use of modern technology, professional business practices, and technical writing.
Students also participate in a workplace practicum coordinated by KPU and co-supervised by faculty and employers in relevant fields of employment.
This practicum placement will assist students in gaining workplace experience and in meeting potential future employers.
Students interested in applying to graduate school or who prefer a more extensive research experience are encouraged to apply to the Honours program.
The Honours program affords students an opportunity to develop and report on a research project under the direct supervision of a faculty member within the Psychology Department. B.Sc. in Applied Psychology students can complete the Honours program within the 40 courses required for the degree.
