The Psychology Department offers MA and PhD programs. Students may select Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience, Lifespan Development, or Social/Personality as their focus. Both MA and PhD programs are characterized by active faculty collaboration within and across areas and by a research focus. Both programs have a part-time option. Part-time students must ensure that there is sufficient flexibility in their work schedules to allow for attendance at courses, seminars, colloquia, and examinations; to engage in data collection; and to participate in meetings with supervisors as required. Student-faculty meetings are scheduled at the mutual convenience of the student and supervisor. The PhD program offers special opportunities for students to individualize their learning experience through a choice of methods courses and a choice of electives, including apprenticeships and independent study courses.
