Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Brock University!
Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. The teaching and research of our 25 faculty members span the breadth of this fascinating area of study.
Our undergraduate programs provide students with breadth and depth of knowledge in psychology, along with skills in writing, critical thinking, and data analysis. In most of our courses, lectures are supplemented with seminars that allow small-group discussion. Each year we award approximately 200 Bachelor of Arts degrees, divided among our Honours BA degree, our four-year BA with Major degree, or our three-year Pass BA degree. More information about undergraduate education in psychology at Brock can be found at our Undergraduate Program website.
Our graduate program awards MA and PhD degrees, and emphasizes the development of research skills in the broad areas of social/personality psychology, lifespan development, and behavioural neuroscience.

In conducting their research, our faculty members collaborate intensively with our graduate students and often with our upper-year undergraduate students as well.
