Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

What is a Forensic Psychology minor?

Forensic Psychology involves applying core psychological principles to issues that have implications for the legal and justice system. A minor in Forensic Psychology is available to students of other majors at our university with the exception of Psychology. Students who major in Psychology are unable to take a minor in Forensic Psychology. Students should be aware of course prerequisites needed to pursue this minor. The Forensic Psychology minor consists of six courses (18 credit hours). A cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 in the minor courses is required to successfully complete the Forensic Psychology minor.
