Psychology Graduate Program
Come study with us!

Together, the students, faculty, and staff of the Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba have developed an outstanding learning and research environment. As the first university founded in Western Canada, The University of Manitoba has served as the academic gateway to the Canadian West, and our Department of Psychology can serve as the gateway to your future.

We hope that you will consider joining us here at the University of Manitoba. We have an energetic, productive, and caring department that will provide the support, education, and research opportunities you need to reach your goals. Once you settle on an area of specialization in which you would like to pursue graduate studies, it is often a good idea to contact a professor or two with whom you might like to work both to introduce yourself and to ask for more information about their interests and research.
