Timothy Racine, Department Chair

Situated within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Department of Psychology is its largest academic unit, comprised of approximately 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students, 40 faculty members, and 15 support staff. At the undergraduate level, the Department offers a BA and Honours BA, along with the option of pursuing a joint major, minor, and extended minor for students majoring in other fields. At the graduate level, the Department offers an MA leading to a PhD across six core areas of psychology, in addition to a specialized training program in Clinical Psychology.

Each of our programs affords our students the opportunity to gain comprehensive training in theoretical knowledge and psychological methods, along with the flexibility to explore courses in various specialized areas of study. Our six core focus areas include Clinical Science, Cognitive & Neural Science, Developmental Psychology, History, Quantitative & Theoretical Psychology, Law & Forensic Psychology, and Social Psychology. Further information about these programs can be found on our Undergraduate and Graduate pages.

In our Department, students are also given opportunities to learn alongside faculty through engaging in research projects. Research conducted by our members spans multiple levels of analysis, including the neural, personal, and societal. Much of our work is geared toward addressing health with the aim of enhancing human development. Our faculty members receive substantial support from major research funding agencies in Canada, with many having international reputations.
