Welcome to the graduate program in Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB). We have a strong and diverse research base [link to research areas], as well as our Research and Clinical Training stream. The breadth of research areas provides a rich academic environment and hand-ons research opportunities for our trainees.
The PNB graduate program introduces students to the issues and questions in the field of experimental psychology, and trains students on the theoretical basis and research approaches used to study psychological questions. We have 30 core faculty, several associate faculty members from across campus and over 100 graduate students. Our graduate program is strongly research-oriented and provides flexibility to optimize your program around your research interests. Our strong collegial environment supports scientific interactions among faculty and students, and fosters interdisciplinary work, with students often undertaking research projects with more than one faculty member.
Prospective, incoming and current graduate students will find the PNB Graduate Student Handbook to be a useful collection of information about Hamilton, McMaster and the PNB graduate program. It includes the facts about application procedures, program requirements, courses and much more.
