The University of Windsor Psychology programs combination of course work, research, and practicum/internship experiences provides students with the resources necessary to teach, work, and conduct research in a variety of settings, including university departments, educational and community organizations.


Students who are most successful in clinical programs are academic high-achievers with strong interest in the science of human behaviour, well-developed interpersonal skills, and the desire to help improve the lives of others through careers in research and professional practice.

On admission, students spend 6 to 7 years taking courses, conducting research for their MA thesis and PhD dissertation, accruing supervised clinical experience in a variety of practicum settings, and completing a one-year full-time internship in an accredited clinical setting. 

The department has strong programs in Applied Social Psychology and Clinical Psychology. Both programs at University of Windsor are designed to take six years to complete, including the completion of an MA degree which is expected to be completed within the first two years. MA Completion beyond the two years may jeopardize standing in the program. All of our graduate programs admit students for entry in the Fall term (September start). All programs are full time; there is no part-time option.

Eligible students receive financial support in the first year in the form of entrance scholarships if meeting the required 80% academic average as well as employment as a Graduate Assistant. In addition, students may apply for Tri-Council Scholarship and/or Ontario Graduate Scholar scholarship support prior to commencing studies. Other support may be available from individual faculty for research or applied projects.
