Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology offers a range of undergraduate program options, in addition to a Master of Science in Applied Psychology and a Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. Undergraduate courses are open to students in all three faculties and are grouped into three broad categories:

  • Psychology as a natural science: brain and behaviour; biology, evolution, and behaviour, cognition.
  • Psychology as a social science: human development; social behaviour; and personality and psychopathology.
  • General psychology: statistics and research methods, history of psychology.

Our faculty and students are actively engaged in research, and psychology professors regularly involve undergraduate students in research activities. The Department also holds an annual psychology student conference where students have the opportunity to present their own research.
