The Department of Psychology & Health Studies offers four graduate training streams
The Clinical Psychology stream follows a well-balanced scientist-practitioner model, and is fully accredited by both the Canadian Psychological Association. Students have access to a wide variety of practicum placements (e.g., child, adolescent, adult, family, community-based out-patient services, university-based counselling services, hospital-based in-patient services, and forensic services).
Applied Social Psychology
The Applied Social Psychology stream is an innovative area of concentration emphasizing the integration of theory, research and practice in an effort to understand social problems and improve social conditions through program and policy development. Students are trained to carry out basic and field research and to serve as research and evaluation consultants in a variety of community and organizational settings.
Cognition and Neuroscience
Cognition and Neuroscience is intended for students who wish to focus primarily on basic experimental research and theoretical issues, as opposed to applied training. Most faculty in this area have research funding from national granting agencies and they work very closely with graduate students in a wide variety of research topics.
Culture, Health and Human Development
The Culture, Health and Human Development stream seeks to understand developmental processes in cultural context and across the lifespan. It is built upon interdisciplinary research and training with primary strengths in developmental, social, and clinical psychology as well as cultural and medical anthropology.
We encourage you to consider one of our well-established graduate training as you plan your academic career, and we look forward to receiving your application.
