Successful completion of the Baccalaureate in Psychology including an honours thesis, or its equivalent (determined only during admission), with a GPA of 8.0 (A- or 80% over the last 20 courses or 60 credits) is a pre-requisite for admission to both our graduate programs. For the program in Clinical Psychology, in order to meet a component of the academic requirements for registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, a minimum of twenty undergraduate psychology courses is required for admission. Students who have completed a Masters' degree in Psychology may be given advanced standing.
Exceptionally, admission to the Experimental Psychology program is possible on the basis of a four-year Honours degree in another discipline relevant to Psychology, with a letter of support from the prospective supervisor. The degree must include a thesis or an equivalent independent research project (with supervisor worth 6 credits) and at least 36 credits (12 one-session courses) in Psychology, including two single-semester courses in statistics. N.B.: Students with a strong background in mathematics, physical sciences, biological science or computer science are especially encouraged to apply to the Experimental program.
