Research in Psychology

The Department of Psychology Faculty are leaders in their fields.  Their research ranges from work with animals to people, from the individual to the group, and from healthy functioning to unhealthy functioning.  We have two undergraduate programs (BA and BSc) and four graduate programs in psychology (Applied Social, Cognition/Neuroscience, Clinical, and Culture and Human Development).  Many of our faculty work in more than one area and supervise students from different programs, including those outside of psychology.

Our faculty are active researchers and are often looking for undergraduate research assistants and potential graduate students.  Feel free to look at their areas of interest and email them if you would like more information.
