November 07, 2018

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is proud to congratulate our Department of Psychology for placing 101-125 in the 2019 Times Higher Education (THE) Psychology Subject Ranking!

The THE World University 2019 Rankings include more than 1250 universities from across the globe. This ranking puts SFU Psychology within the top 10% of Psychology departments worldwide. THE subject rankings are based on the same range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings 2019, with the methodology adjusted to suit individual fields.

Chair of Psychology, Dr. Deb Connolly, says she couldn't be more proud to be a part of a department whose commitment to engaging students has resulted in such an achievement, emphasizing it is due to the collective hard work of all staff, faculty, and students in Psychology.

"When I have the opportunity to review the research of my faculty colleagues, I am amazed and inspired by its breadth, depth, and relevance. Our gifted and extremely hard-working faculty are engaged in pioneering research and impactful dissemination. At the forefront of our research is students. Often, students are involved from conception to publication, regularly serving as co-authors. And this success is due, in no small part, to our wonderful staff who go beyond the call of duty to do all they can to help faculty stay focused on research and teaching. Our collective commitment to engaging students in all levels of research from conception to publication, is the very definition of engagement at the juncture of research and teaching."

Congratulations to the Department of Psychology!
