The graduate Psychology program in Applied Psychology with a clinical emphasis is designed to prepare students for work in schools, mental health, or other applied settings or to pursue Ph.D.-level studies. In addition to course work and research, students must complete a practicum. Graduates are eligible to pursue registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (other conditions may apply). For information on how to become a psychological associate, visit the website of the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
The Experimental field provides students with research training in Psychological Science. Graduates may pursue further Ph.D.-level studies, teach at the community college level, or seek employment in a range of settings.
In addition to providing official university transcripts, applicants must submit two reference letters, which both of them must be from full-time university psychology faculty. You must also provide a letter which explains why you wish to be accepted to this program, what strengths you bring to the program, and what you expect from the program. You must also submit a completed questionnaire for either the Applied or Experimental stream (see #5 below).
