Graduates from our M.Sc., M.Ed., and Ph.D. programs are capable of obtaining registration as a psychologist (or psychological associate) in Alberta and across Canada. Our graduates are typically employed in public or private schools, community/mental health agencies, hospital/medical settings, and academia as practitioners, administrators, and researchers.
To achieve these goals, our program cultivates students who are theoretically- and scientifically-informed critical thinkers who demonstrate excellence as providers of high-quality, evidence-based prevention, assessment, intervention and research services. Our graduates are scientist-practitioners who benefit from learning experiences enriched by empirical investigation and supervised training experiences within both the clinical and school environments.
