In addition to Faculties of Graduate Studies and Arts requirements, the Department requires:
Master of Science
Master's students must take no fewer than 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents), 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) of which must come from Psychology 607, 611, 613, 615, 617, or 619; and at least 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) of which must come from Psychology 601, 620, 630, 639, 700, 710, 720, 730, or 739 over their 24-month program (courses other than Psychology 601 may be repeated for credit). A student may take seminar courses from other departments instead of courses in the second list above, upon approval of their supervisor and the Graduate Program Director.
Doctor of Philosophy
Doctoral students shall take no fewer than 18 units (3.0 full-course equivalents) while in the program. The Supervisor and the Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Psychology, must approve all courses. Incoming doctoral students must demonstrate that they have an adequate background in statistics and methodology (including computer applications). Those needing remedial work may be required by the Department of Psychology to take particular courses.
Industrial Organizational Specialization
I/O students in the MSc program are required to take 24 units (4.0 full-course equivalents) with 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) in research methods and statistics, 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) in I/O Psychology (639, 739), and 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) outside the I/O area.
I/O students in the PhD program are required to take 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) in I/O Psychology (739), and 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) outside of I/O Psychology that were not completed during the MSc program.
Medical Imaging Specialization
The specialization is open to students interested in pursuing research in cognitive and clinical neuroscience. This specialization requires completion of a course sequence in Medical Imaging (see the MEDI section for further details). MSc students must take a minimum of two courses (the core and a foundational course). PhD students would take three courses (including the core, a foundational and an elective course). PhD students previously completing the MSc Specialization in Medical Imaging will be required to complete one elective course in medical imaging.
These requirements are in addition to the core requirements of the Psychology graduate program. The Medical Imaging courses would count towards Psychology graduate program elective courses.
