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.

For more information, please consult our website (https://www.psych.utoronto.ca/), or the Undergraduate Administrator in Sidney Smith Hall, Room 4014, by phone at (416) 978-3407 or via email (undergrad@psych.utoronto.ca).

Regarding Psychology Programs

Psychology programs at the St. George Campus are limited enrolment, which means there are a limited 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 Grade 12 Calculus and Grade 12 Biology (we will also accept these two courses taken at the college and university-level). Please note that these two requirements will not be waived.
