University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Cumming School of Medicine 3. Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies 3.9 Combined BCR/BA or BSc (Psychology)
3.9 Combined BCR/BA or BSc (Psychology)

This five-year program leads to both the Bachelor of Community Rehabilitation (offered by the Cumming School of Medicine) and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Psychology (offered by the Faculty of Arts) degrees, and is jointly sponsored by the two faculties. Completion of the program requires a minimum of 150 units.


Students pursuing this program may enter the combined degree in year one or a subsequent year. Admission requirements of both Faculties, the Department of Psychology and Community Rehabilitation Studies, must be satisfied in order to qualify for the combined degree program.

The program requires careful selection of courses to complete all requirements of the two Faculties. Interested students are urged to contact Arts Students’ Centre (Student Inquiries) and the Student Advisor in the Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies Program. It will be possible for students to opt out of the combined program until the end of their third year and complete either a BA or BSc in Psychology or a BCR degree in four years. Students should note, however, that if courses have been unevenly distributed, more than four years may be required to complete the degree.


1. The Faculty of Arts requires the successful completion of both:

(a) the "Faculty of Arts Requirements for Combined Degree" or “Faculty of Arts Requirements for Combined Degrees with an Honours Component” listed in the Faculty of Arts, section 3.3.5 Combined Degrees, and

(b) the requirements for the BA or BSc Psychology listed in section 4.47 Psychology. Students should seek Psychology course registration advice from a program advisor in the Arts Students' Centre.

2. Students in the BCR/BA or BA Honours Psychology program must complete Biology 205 and 305. Students in the BCR/BSc or BSc Honours Psychology program must complete Biology 241 and 243.

3. The Cumming School of Medicine requires successful completion of all courses required for graduation with a BCR degree as listed in section 3.8 BCR Requirements.

4. The following required Community Rehabilitation courses must be completed. At least 42 units from this list must be taken at the University of Calgary. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor regarding the sequencing of course work.

Note: The options and senior options may be used to complete the Psychology portion of the combined degree.
