Carleton’s graduate programs in psychology train students to use the scientific method to study mind and behaviour. The PhD program is strongly research-oriented and emphasizes hands-on training. In addition to exciting opportunities for developing research collaborations within the department and across the University, students can enrol in a range of graduate courses and participate in community practica. Our doctoral program provides the knowledge and experience to launch and lead an independent program of research.
