Laurier's Department of Psychology has an active research program, with faculty members' research interests encompassing topics in behavioural neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, community psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology.
Students also have plenty of opportunities to do research. Undergraduate students can apply to do an honours thesis in their fourth year, in which they work closely with a faculty member on a full-year research and writing project.
Graduate students' programs are largely built around research, and the master's or doctoral theses they produce are substantial pieces of original work that contribute to academic understanding. For more information, see the online Graduate Student Handbook.
