UBC Psychology welcomes students to the 2021-2022 academic year

Message from the Department Head

On behalf of the Department of Psychology, I wish you a warm welcome to the 2021-2022 academic year. Whether you are a returning student or a new student on our campus for the first time, we are thrilled that you have chosen to study psychology at UBC.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been very challenging for our community and I want you to know that our faculty members and staff are committed to providing you with any academic support and resources that you may need.

We are proud of our accomplished, passionate and diverse community of students. Many of you work or volunteer in the classroom or in our labs and every year we learn from you, as you do from us. I’m glad to join you on this journey and I look forward to the year ahead.

With warmest wishes,

Geoffrey Hall
Head, Department of Psychology

This is a chance for new and returning students to ask the department questions about psychology programs, student resources, research opportunities, life as an RA, student clubs, and much more, in real time. Meet the people taking part and learn about the kinds of questions they can answer here!
