Master of Science in Psychology
Choose the path that’s right for you
The Psychology graduate program (MSc) is a research-intensive program with three distinct fields of study providing a sound preparation for careers in health, science or communications-related fields and a natural stepping stone to pursue further doctoral (PhD) studies, including our brand new PhD program in Psychology (pending approval for September 2022).
Health Psychology focuses on affect regulation, analysis of healthcare systems, attachment relationships, cross-cultural relations, community and family dynamics, dreams, emotional intelligence, human sexuality, personality and psychopathology, and stress and coping.
Developmental Psychology studies the acquisition of language, attachment relationships, community and family dynamics, culture and development, identity formation, and psychosocial functioning both in youth and aging.
Cognition/ Perception/ Neuroscience examines cognitive enhancement and dementia, psycholinguistics, number representation, neural mechanisms of memory and learning, visual cognition, multisensory perception and action, neural plasticity and the molecular/ cellular foundations of stress biology and neuropsychiatric disorders.
