Footnotes:

Second year PSYC courses at Langara require both PSYC 1115 & 1215 with a C+ or higher (2.33)

To be admitted into the Major program at SFU a final course grade of C (2.0) or better is required in PSYC 201W (Langara PSYC 2320)

To enroll in SFU PSYC 210 the prerequisites are PSYC 201W and one of the following: BC Math 11 (B-  or better); BC Math 12 (C or better); any university level MATH/STAT course (C- or better); or SFU FANx99 (C or better). However, to enroll in Langara’s equivalent, PSYC 2321, the prerequisites are one of the following courses completed within the last three years: a minimum "C" grade in Foundations of Mathematics 11, Pre-calculus 11, Foundations of Mathematics 12, or Pre-calculus 12; an "S" grade in MATH 1150; or a satisfactory score (053) on the statistics version of the Mathematics and Statistics Diagnostic Test (MDT).

4 The electives should include SFU W/Q/B requirements.
