Welcome to the Department of Psychology!

The department has approximately 450 majors, 30 faculty, and over 100 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, health and wellness, 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.

As an Indigenous youth from the NunatuKavut Inuit community in southern Labrador, Amelia Jones was taught respect for her elders.

During her time at Memorial, the bachelor of science (honours) student became engrossed in researching the neural and molecular underpinnings of memory across the lifespan.

Spring graduate Sydney Hillier was halfway through her undergraduate degree when she was in a car accident in 2018.

The traumatic event sidelined her plan to complete a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry (nutrition) at Memorial University.
