Combined Degree with Community Rehabilitation

Combined BA or BSc in Psychology / BCR (Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation)

This is a five year program that leads to either a BA or BSc in Psychology and a BCR (Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation). The degree is offered by the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Medicine. A minimum of 25 full course equivalents is required to complete the program.

Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies is a dynamic, experiential program examining the economic, social, and political forces that serve to marginalize people. CRDS students learn to design, deliver and evaluate community-based support services and how to form alliances that promote full participation in community.

You may be interested in this program if you wish to work in community organizations but may not yet received practical experience. You will benefit by receiving a solid background in psychology as well as supervised community practice, access to contact with over 250 community service agencies, and an entry level professional degree for rehabilitation practitioners.

For guidance in completing degree requirements in both degrees, contact:
