Department of Psychology | Home

Psychology at the University of Toronto Mississauga is an experimental discipline situated within the life sciences and devoted to the understanding of behaviour.

Our faculty complement includes scientists who study:

  • personality
  • social behaviour
  • development
  • abnormal behaviour
  • cognition
  • perception
  • behavioural neuroscience

Our globally-ranked research reflects many analytic approaches to the investigation of behaviour and includes the study of both humans and animals. This range and diversity of our research expertise is reflected in our undergraduate program, which is broad and comprehensive, preparing our students for postgraduate programs and other occupations requiring a Psychology background.

As part of the tri-campus graduate department of Psychology, we also provide training at the MA-PhD level, and participate in a number of very successful interdisciplinary programs.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our research, academic programs and other resources.
