Welcome to the Department of Psychology!

The department has approximately 450 majors, 30 faculty, and over 100 graduate students. Each year, over 100 students receive an undergraduate degree in our programs.

At the undergraduate level, we offer a major, a minor, and an honours program in psychology (either B.A. or B.Sc.), a major and an honours program in behavioural neuroscience (B.Sc.), a co-op program for psychology and behavioural neuroscience majors, and several joint honours programs with biology (B.Sc. Hons.) and biochemistry (B.Sc. Hons.).

At the graduate level, we offer a Masters in Applied Psychological Science, and a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in several different areas of experimental psychology, including behavioural neuroscience, cognition, developmental, social psychology, health and wellness, and the interdisciplinary cognitive and behavioural ecology (CABE) program.  Our newest graduate degree offering is the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree in clinical psychology. This is the only graduate program we offer in clincial psychology.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences’ (HSS) new certificate in the history and philosophy of science and technology is of broad interest to students of science, engineering, medicine, humanities and social sciences.

The program will challenge students to think critically and analytically about the consequences of past, present and future technological innovations on human existence, and the world we inhabit.

Since the creation of the Faculty of Science’s doctor of psychology (PsyD) program in 2009, 21 of the 36 graduates, or nearly 60 per cent, have stayed in Newfoundland and Labrador.

However, the suspension of one of the province’s two residency programs for clinical psychologists may have an impact on the number who choose to remain in the future.
