Welcome to the Department of Psychology!

The department has approximately 350 majors, 30 faculty, and over 60 graduate students. Each year, over 100 students receive an undergraduate degree in our programs.

At the undergraduate level, we offer a major, a minor, and an honours program in psychology (either B.A. or B.Sc.), a major and an honours program in behavioural neuroscience (B.Sc.), a co-op program for psychology and behavioural neuroscience majors, and several joint honours programs with biology (B.Sc. Hons.) and biochemistry (B.Sc. Hons.).

At the graduate level, we offer a Masters in Applied Psychological Science, and a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in several different areas of experimental psychology, including behavioural neuroscience, cognition, developmental, social psychology, and the interdisciplinary cognitive and behavioural ecology (CABE) program.  Our newest graduate degree offering is the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree in clinical psychology. This is the only graduate program we offer in clincial psychology.
