O que eu aprenderei?

Graduate training in psychology stresses training in general experimental psychology, leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Areas of specialization include the following:

  • Biology and behavior
  • Perception, cognition, and cognitive neuroscience
  • Development
  • Social, personality, and abnormal psychology.

Assuming adequate performance, students normally proceed to the PhD program after their MA year.

In the four-year PhD program, students must complete the following courses:

  • Professional Psychology (PhD1).
  • Outside Project course (PhD1): This is a one-term research project course spread out over the full year. The project supervisor must be a faculty member other than the student’s PhD supervisor.
  • PhD Proposal (PhD2) and PhD Reading List Defence (PhD4). : These requirements relate directly to the PhD Thesis.
  • Two additional graduate courses.
  • One additional course in statistics.

Students admitted with an MA from another university may be exempted from the Project course in PhD1. However, these students must replace this credit..

In addition to these course requirements, students will complete and defend a PhD Thesis, ideally by the end of PhD4. Students are also encouraged to attend departmental talks and colloquia, as well as other laboratories meetings, reading groups, etc.
