Health Psychology

More psychologists today are working in applied settings such as clinics, hospitals and agencies that are concerned with health and wellness issues. The Bishop's Psychology Department therefore now offers the option of taking a new Concentration in Health Psychology (as well as the Human Resources and Neuroscience concentrations). This new program leads to the usual BA in Psychology, but also provides an additional specialisation in the expanding health field. The Major in Psychology with a Concentration in Health Psychology requires the same set of core and area courses as for the regular major in Psychology, but also courses in Health Psychology (2 semesters), the human body, and aging, plus at least two courses to be chosen from: occupational health psychology, nutrition, sports and exercise psychology, neuropsychology of aging, and psychopharmacology.

Honours in Psychology with a Concentration in Health Psychology is also possible. The following four courses area required: Research Methods II, Multivariate Statistics, Dissertation, and Internship in Health Psychology.
