Welcome to the Department of Psychology Graduate Program

 MA & PhD Programs

Our graduate program has been designed to provide intensive research training and to develop the capacity for a critical and scholarly approach to issues in each of the three focus areas: Behavioural Neuroscience, Lifespan Development, and Social/Personality. The relatively small size of our program affords our graduate students many opportunities to interact intensively with faculty, play an important role in faculty research laboratories, and be mentored carefully by their supervisors.
