TORONTO is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world, and an epicenter of culture in Canada.
YORK UNIVERSITY has a proud tradition of being the Toronto University that celebrates diversity, social justice, and independent thinking.
PSYCHOLOGY at York reflects all of these qualities, with our department constituting one of the largest psychology departments in North America, including a diverse range of concentration areas.
SOCIAL/PERSONALITY psychology at York is also very diverse, with a clear focus on conducting empirical research. Faculty in our area study a broad variety of topics, but these can all be seen as reflecting two core strengths: interpersonal or intergroup relations (Hynie, Kawakami, Lalonde, Mar, McGregor, Ross, Schuller, Steele, and Struthers) and social psychological issues related to health (Flett, Greenglass, Hynie, McCann, McGregor, and Wiesenthal). Our area also has very strong ties to the Quantitative Methods Area (Cribbie, Flora, Friendly), and the Neuroscience Diploma Program (Mar, McGregor). Research by the Social/Personality faculty is greatly assisted by the involvement of an active, culturally diverse, and well-organized research participant pool.
