Our School of Graduate Studies offers an MA or MSc in Psychology as well as a research oriented PhD in Behaviour and Evolution or Neuroscience. Graduate studies in clinical or counselling psychology are not available in the Department of Psychology at this time.
The central experience of our Master's program is the creation of a thesis. At the Master's level, a thesis project involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. When applying for admission to our graduate program, students must also closely collaborate with potential supervisors. Consequently, it is necessary for potential students to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission to the program.
The central experience the PhD program is the pursuit of scholarship culminating in the creation of a thesis. Students also complete a limited number of courses (from 2 to 4 graduate level courses in most cases), the number and details of which are determined at the time of admission and vary from student to student.
