Why Dalhousie?

Research focus

Dalhousie's Psychology and Neuroscience graduate programs place a strong emphasis on research and can be best described as "apprenticeship" programs. At both the master's and doctoral levels, students work with faculty members, who supervise each student's research.

Research strength and independent, critical thinking are the hallmarks of our students, graduates and faculty. We are commiitted to building and sharing knowledge in the fields of psychology and neuroscience.

Please note: Admissions to our Programs happens once per year. Our deadline for applications for the Clinical Psychology Program is Nov 15th, the deadline for the Experimental or Neuroscience Programs is Dec. 1st for the following Fall.
