yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.

I am looking for a university currently to dpuble major in fine arts and anthropology. I am wandering if anyone has attended or knows of anyone who has attended Brock universities fine arts program since they added the new building in 2012. If you know anything about the quality of the program please let me know! I only was able to find one review on the program thus far and that was prior to Brock adding the building. I am specifically wandering how good the drawing (digital and traditional) courses are at brock as I would like to go into the field of illustration ( and photography for photojournalism). The reason Brock stuck out to me is because it is one of the few universities that offer digital drawing courses and the option to double major. I want to double major in anthropology as well as fine arts (because I would like to be a journalist for ethnobotany and anthropology issues in a magazine like national geographic as well as an illustrator). Any advice would be appreciated :) thank you for taking the time to read this!
I'm in senior year of High School and beginning to apply to post-secondary. I've already finished my applications for SFU and UVic. My other schools of interest are UBC (Vancouver campus) and Concordia University, however, my GPA from last year was only sitting around 3.67, which worries me a bit.
Teachers have not sent out any grades so far this year, but assuming I score a similar/slightly higher average, what are the chances that I could get into these schools? I've done some volunteer work, and intend on doing more throughout this year, but don't do any sports or fine arts.
Though I'm not set on what I want to study, some courses of interest include Behavioural Neuroscience, Chem & Biochem, Anthropology, Psychology, Criminology/Criminal Law, Languages (French & English) and Social Justice type courses. Any insight on this/opinion helps, thanks! :)
Hey guys! I am a third year at Trent University studying Anthropology (BSc). If you have any Trent-specific questions, questions about my major, or university questions in general please do not hesitate to ask! :)
I am planning on summer schooling grade 10 civics and careers which will leaves me with a free course. What grade 11 course should I take other than like the mandatory ones like bio, functions etc. (electives I mean)? Is Grade 11 Anthropology a good course to take in grade 11?
My plan is to finish 2 grade 11 courses before grade 11 starts so that I can have a spare or even do a grade 12 course. I will have less stress and can focus better on the hard courses like math or the sciences in Grade 12.
So I am extremely confused when it comes to these different res colleges. Are these just res buildings nicknamed colleges or do we do our actual study and classes there? Do we not study at a common university on campus?
I am attending Trent this fall, i got an early admit for the Honours Anthology program :) and is there common residences for each faculty? I would like to live in res with a few other anthropology students though I understand if that's not how the sorting goes.
So I was just looking through the courses and I was wondering if any UBCO students or ex students; majored/ing in International Relations could suggest me the courses I should consider taking in my first year.
I live in Sudbury Ontario and got accepted to both Laurentrian and Lakehead for anthropology and am torn between which schools to attend too. Does anyone know how the program is and which school offers better classroom settings and a better atmosphere?
I am going into grade 12 and interested in business.
The title already says it all. I have heard a lot of good and bad things about these schools as well as many different points of view. Could you please tell me your preference in regard to any aspect of school and why.
The ultimate goal of attending a university is to land a job. Therefore, please address about the job placements after graduation.
Please be simple and unbiased as much as possible. Real personal experiences are highly preferred. If using any source on the internet, please be selective. No rage war and stay on the subject please.
I am a grade 12 student and really want to go into criminology and become a criminologist or a lawyer. I was just wondering if the criminology program at Ryerson is any good? I heard UofT and York are better than ryerson.
I'm talking about a bachelor of arts, not science.
Psychologists typically make a fair amount of money (about $75, 000) and the degree is very versatile. I can go to med school, law school, or the business industry. But it doesn't stop there, I can go into the education industry and become a counselor and even criminology (being a detective or a criminal psychologist).
I would really appreciate it if people shared their knowledge on psychology programs and what it takes to become a psychologist.
Apparently, I'm required to have a PhD in psychology.
1. How long does it take to get a PhD?
2. What courses have you taken in university? 3. What's your program like? In terms of difficulty and such?
4. Are there any other opportunities for aspiring psychologists? What other jobs can I get with a psychology degree?
