Psychology programs emphasize the scientific method and its application to the study of behaviour and thought processes in humans and animals. Courses in a wide range of areas are taught by outstanding faculty, many of whom conduct leading edge research in areas such as child development, social behaviour, cognition, perception, personality and the biological basis of behaviour. You can engage in ongoing research and/or applied field work under the supervision of faculty members.

"I wanted a leading institution and U of T was that choice. I also liked the geographic proximity – I walked to campus my first year – and my familiarity with the campus."
- Sven Spengemann, HBSc, Psychology, Class of 1990
