Что я буду изучать?

Our Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology is offered within three fields: community psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology.


In our community psychology field, you’ll gain valuable work experience as a community consultant through our practicum placement. You’ll spend 200 hours in your practicum placement learning important practical skills as you critically reflect on your practicum experience using an Action, Theory, and Research (ART) model.

In community psychology, we’ll teach you to take a value-based, action-oriented and ecological approach to your research – focusing not only on the individual, but also on the social, physical and community environment in which that individual lives.


In developmental and social psychology, we believe that great researchers are trained in a supportive learning environment. As soon as you start either of these program fields, you’ll begin conducting research with a faculty adviser in your first year.

Over the course of two years, with the close mentorship of your adviser, you’ll learn how to develop a research program, how to use new research methodologies and statistical techniques, and how to communicate your research like an expert. You’ll generate new research that can advance basic knowledge in psychology, and you may have the opportunity to present your research at national or international conferences.

You’ll form close bonds with faculty and peers through small, intensive courses, research lab groups, and regular area meetings including seminars and journal clubs.


This full-time program is normally completed in two years (six consecutive terms).

  • Program requirements vary by field:
  • Community psychology: six half-credit courses, a practicum, and a thesis.
  • Developmental and social psychology: five half-credit courses, a research seminar and a thesis.


Historically, our students have been placed in government departments, community agencies, schools, non-profit organizations and grassroots settings.

  • Examples of jobs held by our graduate include:
  • faculty position at Carleton University
  • Government of Canada
  • researcher at a Kitchener non-governmental organization
