The Department of Psychology’s graduate programs owe their strength to the quality of our research faculty, well-organized programs of study, extensive opportunities for student-faculty interaction, and a diverse offering of research specializations.

Graduate students form an integral part of the Department’s research and teaching activities and they represent the future of psychology research and discovery. Our 123 full-time psychology graduate students conduct research across the spectrum of psychology representing these sub-disciplinary specializations: Behavioural Neuroscience, Clinical, Cognitive Science, Developmental, Health, Quantitative Methods, and Social/Personality.
