D.1 Program affected: New: Existing: Certificate in Mental Health Studies Description of new program or changes to existing one: The certificate will require completion of 12 term courses (36 credit hours). Students will be required to complete three (3) mandatory undergraduate termcourses (PSYC 1003, PSYC 1004, and PSYC 3553), and select a minimum of nine (9) elective term courses: Two (2) from each of four groups and an additional term course from any of the four groups outlined in a list of courses (see Calendar copy). All courses for the Certificate are degree credited courses. The duration of the program will be 1 2 years of full time study, or up to 4 years of part time study. Rationale for new program or regulation change(s): This new certificate program is intended to provide additional education to professionals working in mental health related fields (e.g., nursing, outreach/support workers, correctional officers, social workers, counselors) who are interested in advancing their knowledge about mental health topics that relate to their work (e.g., information about mental health disorders and psychosocial issues impacting on personal functioning, lifespan development, and intervention). This certificate will complement the education of professionals who have non university and other university level degree programs that did not offer as in depth a psychological focus on mental health topics. Effective date for change: January 1, 2011 FoA [10 11] 7. Format V.4 Revised October 2009 PSYCHOLOGY General Information and Curriculum Successful completion of PSYC 1003 or an equivalent is necessary before taking PSYC Both PSYC 1003 and PSYC 1004 must be completed before taking any of the remaining psychology courses. Major and Honours MAJOR To qualify for a Major degree a student must accumulate 14 approved term-courses in Psychology. Five term-courses are compulsory as follows: PSYC 1003, PSYC 1004, PSYC 2102, PSYC 2901 (or equivalent), PSYC A minimum grade of C (2.0) is required for all Psychology courses taken to meet the Majors requirement. A student who wishes to do a double major in Psychology and another discipline must complete 12 term-courses including 8 term-courses in upper level courses and all the compulsory courses for the single Major in psychology. A minimum grade of C (2.0) is required for all psychology courses taken to meet the Double Majors requirement. HONOURS The Honours program in Psychology provides a broad knowledge of this field and its research methods. Students planning to pursue graduate studies in psychology are advised to consider this program. Students may apply to the Honours program at the end of their third year (that is 30 term courses). To be eligible to apply they must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 (B+), as well as, a cumulative grade point average of 3.6 in all psychology courses at the 2000, 3000, and 4000 level. Please note that these minimum requirements do not guarantee acceptance into the Honours program; admittance is competitive and students must obtain a faculty member willing to supervise them. As well, space may be limited. Students must complete 17 approved term-courses in Psychology for the Honours degree. Of the 17 term-courses the following 8 term-courses are compulsory: PSYC 1003, PSYC 1004, PSYC 2102, PSYC 2901 (or equivalent), PSYC 3913, PSYC 4053, PSYC 4143, PSYC An additional 9 term-courses derived from a selection of 3 term-courses from each of the following 3 groups is necessary.

CERTIFICATE IN MENTAL HEALTH STUDIES This Certificate is intended to provide additional education to professionals working in mental health-related fields (e.g., nursing, outreach/support workers, youth workers, correctional officers, social workers, counselors) who are interested in advancing their knowledge about mental health topics that relate to their work (e.g., information about mental health disorders and psychosocial issues impacting on personal functioning, lifespan development, and intervention).

The Certificate will require completion of 12 term-courses (36 credit hours). Students will be required to complete three (3) mandatory undergraduate term-courses (PSYC 1003, PSYC 1004, and PSYC 3553) and select a minimum of 9 elective term-courses: Two (2) from each of the four groups and an additional term-course from any of the four groups as outlined in the list of courses below.
