Welcome to the website of the Graduate Program of the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto. Our tri-campus and multi-institution graduate program enjoys a world-wide reputation for excellence in research and graduate education. Our program's full-time, cross-appointed, and status-only faculty are internationally recognized for their scholarship, with areas of expertise that cover all of the major areas of research in experimental psychology (Behavioural Neuroscience; Developmental; Perception, Cognition, and Cognitive Neuroscience; Social and Personality).
