Research Areas

UBC Psychology follows an apprenticeship model of graduate training where each graduate student initially collaborates with a faculty member. The department is strongly research-oriented and graduate students are expected to engage in research from the start of their studies. The primary aim of the program is to provide students with the skills necessary to conduct psychological research that is publishable in leading journals.

UBC Psychology’s graduate program is diverse with seven areas of specialization and numerous opportunities for interdisciplinary study. We invite you to explore our graduate programs that range across the spectrum of psychology, including Behavioural Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Science, Developmental, Health Psychology, Quantitative Methods, and Social/Personality Psychology.
