To continue in the joint major, students must maintain a 2.25 CGPA. Students whose CGPA falls below 2.25 cannot enrol in any upper division CRIM courses. However, a student whose CGPA is between 2.00 and 2.25 may be eligible for a major in psychology.

*transfer students who meet the Criminology program declaration requirements upon admission to SFU may use their admission CGPA for declaration purposes

Course Selection

Students should complete PSYC 100, 102 and 201 as soon as possible to gain better access to upper division PSYC courses. Students who plan a major in psychology should also complete PSYC 210 as soon as possible.

The Psychology Department strongly recommends that students do not leave any of these required courses to the end of their degree. If a student is unable to obtain the required grade in PSYC 201, he or she will not be able to graduate with a major in psychology.

To enrol in psychology courses, students are required to meet the prerequisites or special instructions that may be stipulated for each. The listed prerequisites indicate the minimal background expected by instructors. See PSYC courses for details.

The Psychology Department reserves one hundred per cent of all 300 and 400 division PSYC courses for approved psychology major, minor or honours students. Those who are not approved cannot enrol in these upper division courses until the open enrolment date.

Program Requirements

Students complete a minimum of 120 units, including a minimum of 45 upper division units, as specified below.

Criminology Requirements
