Introduction

Psychology is the branch of science that focuses on the behaviour of human beings and animals. Our courses span the various areas of psychology and introduce students to the methods used in psychological research. The basic tools of a research psychologist include experimentation in the laboratory and field, naturalistic observation, and the use of statistical methods in interpreting data. 

Our faculty have highly diversified interests which are reflected in the number and variety of our undergraduate course offerings. These include courses in cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, computational neuroscience, developmental psychology, human and animal learning, perception, personality psychology, physiological psychology, and social psychology.

Regarding Psychology Programs

Psychology programs at the St. George Campus are designated Type 2 Limited, which means there are a finite number of spaces to offer students.  Please note that just meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee one a spot in any of our programs and, in most cases, students will need to exceed them to be competitive because of the volume of applications in comparison to the number of program spaces available. 

Entry into all Psychology programs requires the minimum of a senior-level (Gr. 12) high school course in Calculus.  Please note that this requirement will not be waived, nor can it be substituted with a different type of math course (i.e. Data Management, Algebra, Geometry, etc.).  Students who completed PSY100Y1 before 1998 at the University of Toronto are exempt from the Calculus requirement.  Also, effective for admission to the University starting in September 2018, a grade 12 science credit in biology, physics, or chemistry will be required (pending Faculty approval).
