The Department of Psychology (www.concordia.ca/artsci/psychology.html) is home to 44 faculty members, with research strengths in the areas of behavioural neuroscience, clinical and health, cognitive science, and human development. The department is one of the largest in the University, with over 2,100 Psychology major/specialization/honours undergraduate students, and over 200 graduate students in our research and clinical research streams. The Department offers BA, BSc and PhD programs in Psychology, and BSc programs in Psychology with a Specialization in Behavioural Neuroscience. Programs are designed to give students a solid background in psychological theories, methods, research and applications. The goals of all programs are to foster informed and critical thinking based on a research-driven curriculum. The research-focused curriculum in the Department is not just important for those who wish to become researchers. Clinical psychologists, educators and physicians, along with people in marketing, management and human resources all use the information generated by psychological research in their work every day. People in a broad range of other professions need to be able to evaluate the results of research studies and to decide what treatments, policies or programs they will put into place. Therefore, our curriculum provides students with the skills to effectively use the results of research in their chosen careers.
The Department of Psychology at Concordia has a national and international reputation for research productivity and training. Each year researchers in the Department bring in over $4 million in external funding and publishes an impressive number of research articles in top-ranked scientific journals. The Department is home to three Concordia University Research Centres including the Centre for Clinical Research and Health, the Centre for Research in Human Development, and the Center for Studies in Behavioural Neuroscience. In addition, there are interest groups in Bilingualism, Cognitive Sciences, and Social Psychology.
The Faculty of Arts and Science was created in July 1977 through the merger of the former Loyola Faculty of Arts and Science, the former Sir George Williams Faculty of Arts, and the former Sir George Williams Faculty of Science.
The Faculty consists of 27 academic departments, colleges, institutes, and schools as well as more than 20 research centres. The Faculty is committed to responsible and innovative leadership in developing and disseminating knowledge and values and encouraging constructive social criticism. We achieve these objectives through inclusive and accessible academic programs which stress a broad-based, interdisciplinary approach to learning. We are dedicated to superior teaching and research supported by excellence in scholarship and creative activity, and a tradition of service to the community. The Faculty serves many interdependent academic communities in an urban environment where students and faculty can pursue their shared commitment to lifelong learning.
