Degree Program Requirements
We have recently made program changes. Your degree program requirements are often based on your year of entry. If you started your degree program here at York University in 2017 or later, you will need to satisfy the New Degree Requirements.
If you joined our department prior to 2017, you will typically follow the Previous Degree Requirement (as of Fall 2013; Major credits only). However, if you (a) changed to the Faculty of Health, (b) changed your degree type (e.g., BSc to BA), or (c) entered the Specialized Honours program in 2017 or later, OR, if you anticipate finishing your degree requirements after the Winter 2021 term, you will follow the New Degree Requirements.
Also, if you entered the university prior to 2013, your degree requirements outside of the major may differ.
Please check your Degree Progress Report, the Academic Calendar from your year of entry, and/or consult with OSAS or the Undergraduate Office in the Department of Psychology if you have any questions.
