About the Program

York University's Graduate Program in Psychology is the largest in Canada. It is also one of the most diverse—with seven areas of specialization and numerous opportunities for interdisciplinary study.

The Graduate Program offers courses, opportunities for research, and professional training leading to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. With over $13 million currently held in external research funding, the program has been very successful in attracting support for its research. Our programs provide a broad foundation in the basic principles and methods of behavioural science, as well as, considerable field experience.

Our 95 faculty members of the Graduate Program in Psychology include several who are cross-appointed to other graduate programs in Biology, Kinesiology and Health Science, Philosophy and Gender, and Feminist and Women's Studies. Our faculty members are also associated with the several research units at York University.
