OFFERINGS

BACHELOR OF ARTS: BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCES

The Behavioural Sciences program provides you with a unique focus that combines
sociology (the study of social behaviour), psychology (the study of mind and behaviour)
and a general foundation in the social sciences. Studying sociology will help you develop
a perspective sensitive to the social forces that shape you and your world. You'll see
education, politics, economics, religion, culture and Canadian society in new ways.
The study of psychology will enable you to appreciate individual differences and how
people’s behaviour is shaped by biology and culture. You will wrestle with the nature of
the mind, intelligence, consciousness, memory and personal identity.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY DEGREE?

This degree will open doors to careers in areas such as urban studies, criminal justice,
research, community development, advocacy, environmental issues, counselling,
missions and ministry.

This major offers students a real opportunity to contribute to meaningful
and positive change. You won’t be satisfied working at just any job but will
be inspired to seek out positions that are intrinsically rewarding with the
goal of making a difference in the lives of others. From careers in
international relations and human resources to education missions and
so many more – the Behavioural Sciences degree offers so many options
and opportunities.

The English & Film Studies degree is an interdisciplinary program which will unite
your passion for film and theatre with your love for reading, writing and language.
Naturally, you will devote a lot of time to reading texts and viewing films and discussing
their meaning and importance. Your interest in culture and creativity will be brought
to new levels as you explore a wide range of texts in their cultural and historical
context, from Shakespeare to science fiction and contemporary Hollywood to
cutting-edge TV.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY DEGREE?

With this degree, you can choose a career in areas such as writing, publishing, teaching,
media, public relations or in the film industry. You can also use it as a foundation for
professional training in areas like law, journalism, library sciences or education.

“In the English & Film Studies bachelor program at Booth UC,
you’ll develop insight into humanity as you learn to view the
world around you with a broader, more informed perspective.

Are you exploring what career path to take? Are your interests so varied that you’d like to keep
your options open? Choose General Studies, and you’ll be selecting a flexible program where
you can create an individualized plan of study in multiple areas of interest. You’ll have the
freedom to explore courses beyond the core curriculum, focusing in subjects which interest you
the most. The General Studies program allows you to develop a personalized, multi-disciplinary
course of study that specifically matches your needs, educational path and career goals.

“The world is changing rapidly. General Studies prepares you
intellectually for a broad array of careers that need interdisciplinary

the competition need people who can make sense of and challenge
the existing complex systems all around us and become leaders who
have the character and capacity to change the world.”

Meagan Morash, General Studies

BoothUC.ca/General-Studies

BACHELOR OF ARTS: PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour. It is the study of people: how they think, react,
and interact. Studying psychology will help you understand yourself and others. You’ll develop
critical thinking and sound analytical skills, effective communication, interpersonal active-listening
and intercultural communication skills and self-understanding. If you are naturally curious and
constantly in search of knowledge, psychology would be a natural fit. One of the most popular
undergraduate options, psychology is an interesting, exciting and challenging major.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY DEGREE?

With a psychology degree, you can pursue a career in areas such as labour relations, social services,
health services, mental health, personnel, corrections and so much more. If interested in psychology
as a career (including research careers, such as a university professor or as a practicing psychologist),
this undergraduate degree is a required stepping stone to graduate-level studies. A degree in
psychology also provides excellent preparation for those interested in professional programs such
as social work, education or law.

"Booth UC's Psychology program provides students with many unique

opportunities. Starting in introductory courses, students have access to
internships, working with experts in the field, as well as involvement in
professors' research, all of which are typically offered much later in
other programs. Our classrooms are collaborations that allow students
to develop a sophisticated understanding of the inner workings of the

human mind.” Dr. Evan Curtis, Psychology

BACHELOR OF ARTS: Religion

Religion has been and continues to be a major influence in the world. It affects every aspect of the
human experience: history, culture, politics, economics, science, philosophy and more. An adequate
understanding of the world requires some knowledge of its various faith traditions. What do people
believe and what do they practice in diverse religious communities around the globe? How does
religion inform and shape their lives? What does religion contribute to their societies? How does it
provide life with meaning, wisdom, ethical responsibility and beauty? Studying religion enables
us to ask, think about and answer these kinds of complex and important questions.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH MY DEGREE?

Numerous career paths are open to graduates with a Religion degree including church ministry,
social services, management, administration and politics. This degree can also be used as a
stepping stone to pursue further studies in professional fields such as law, medicine, teaching
or journalism.

“Booth University College’s religion program is meant to appeal to a
broad range of students. It not only offers a rich array of courses on
Christianity but also provides a solid introduction to the other religious
traditions of the world. Students in our program are exposed to the
diversity, richness and complexity of religion.”

by our society. These different perspectives are structural, anti-oppressive
and anti-racist. Our social work program has a reputation for developing
strong social workers in the field which are sought after by employers.

PRACTICUMS

Booth UC students have many opportunities

Our Social Work and Psychology programs offer students the opportunity
for student placement during the academic year. This placement allows
students to become familiar with their field of study and incorporate
practical field experience preparing them for their future roles.

The Urban Service Learning (USL) course combines academic study,
community engagement and critical reflection. This core requirement for
all Booth UC students gives them the chance to gain skills and volunteer
experiences, which educate their heart, while building their resumé and
helping those most in need.

The unique USL curriculum explores social issues such as homelessness,
exploitation, poverty, inequality and other forms of injustice. Expanding
beyond the classroom into the heart of Winnipeg, students study and
reflect together on the root causes of injustice while gaining valuable
work/volunteer experience.
