The majority of Psychology courses at Brock have two components.
The first is typically a lecture, and this part of the course might be quite large (our courses in Psychology have enrollments that range from 30 to 1300 students). During lectures, an instructor will often provide information at the front of the room (often with PowerPoint slides), and students are usually expected to take notes.
The second component of Psychology courses is either a seminar or lab/tutorial. One of the best features of Brock’s undergraduate program is our seminar system because seminars offer students a place to engage in more active learning in small groups (generally 15-20 students).
When you are registering for your courses make sure you sign up for both a lecture (called the primary component in the registration system) and a seminar or lab (the secondary component).
