Building on the strength of Trent’s undergraduate program in psychology, Trent offers a Psychology Master’s degree that allows students to pursue a M.A. or M.Sc. based on their background and professional ambitions. This is a research-intensive, two-year program that will appeal to those with an interest in the areas of health, developmental, cognition, perception and neuroscience. The Psychology M.Sc. is a natural step for students working towards their doctorate in this discipline, while also providing strong scientific training for those wanting to pursue careers within health, science or communications-related fields. Psychological research continues to be at the forefront of advancing our understanding of complex and dynamic aspects of human behaviour. Trent has designed a program that provides the academic rigour and interdisciplinary activity that define a great post-graduate degree, delivered by a team of respected professors who maintain active research agendas in their respective fields. Combined with our stateof- the-art facilities – including our Sleep and Electrophysiology Laboratory, Developmental Observation Laboratory, Animal Care facilities and burgeoning DNA facility – Psychology graduate students will enjoy a challenging and highly gratifying experience earning an exceptional degree, all within Trent’s characteristically personal environment.
