The University of Toronto, founded in 1827, is one of the oldest universities in Canada and one of the world's leading research centres.
The scientific study of psychology has a long and illustrious history at the University of Toronto, beginning with J. Mark Baldwin's founding of the tenth psychology laboratory in North America in 1891. Psychology gained department status at the University's St. George campus in 1927, and was later expanded with the addition of the Scarborough (1964) and Mississauga (1966) campuses. The three campuses offer independent undergraduate programs but a common, integrated graduate program.
Presently, there are more than 60 full-time and 20 cross-appointed faculty at the three campuses, with many of the latter based at affiliated hospitals and research institutes. The combined expertise of our faculty spans all major areas of psychology and reflects a wide range of approaches to the study of mind, brain, and behaviour.
With a diverse and internationally recognized faculty, first-rate laboratory facilities, and a tradition of cutting-edge, collaborative research in an inspiring intellectual atmosphere, the department has for over a century been a top choice for those pursuing a career in psychological research.
