The Department of Psychology offers programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
At the graduate studies level, we offer both M.A. and Ph.D. degree programs in our six core areas of Psychology.
Our graduate programs are oriented toward a PhD degree. Those seeking only a master's degree are discouraged from applying. Students with Bachelor degrees must submit their applications to the MA program. Please note that our graduate programs are not offered online.
Typically, students admitted to our graduate programs have a Psychology Honours degree or a Psychology Major with strong research experience, as well as excellent performance in psychology methodology and statistics courses.
All application materials must be submitted online. We require one copy of all official transcripts to be mailed to SFU Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for those offered admission.
