Welcome to the Department of Psychology

Welcome to the UTSC Department of Psychology website! Our Department is the academic home to more than 2,500 students. Our faculty are engaged in cutting edge research in 5 main areas of psychology: clinical, cognitive, developmental, neuroscience, and social. Many of these same faculty are also award winning instructors.
The UTSC Department of Psychology offers undergraduate training in experimental psychology, mental health, and neuroscience, housed at the UTSC campus. In partnership with the tri-campus Graduate Department of Psychology we offer an MA/PhD in experimental psychology. The Department is also very proud to announce the recent creation of the UTSC Graduate Department of Psychological Clinical Science, through which, in partnership with OISE, we are offering an MA/PhD program in clinical psychology.

Congrats to Nadia Al-Dajani and Allison Eades!
