How Do I Choose a University if I Want to Major in Psychology?

By Philip Smith

I think you can create a good undergraduate experience in psychology at any Canadian university.  Now, if you were in the US, I would caution that the range in quality is enormous. Additionally, there are “universities” that are not worthy of the name. 

In Canada, there’s lots of diversity in the university experience, but nothing close to the US extreme in quality. Look for the best match with your needs and interests. What’s most important is what you do with the university experience once you get there.  By becoming fully engaged as an active learner and as an active member of the psychology and broader university community, you can create a fine experience at many, many different schools.
