The School of Psychology offers graduate programs leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Specializations are offered in Clinical Psychology and Experimental Psychology in the following fields approved by the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies:

  • Clinical Psychology
  • Social Psychology
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Cognition
  • Behavioural Neurosciences

Only students who intend to complete a doctorate are admitted. In special circumstances, students may be requested to complete the MA program after their first year of enrollment.

The School participates in a collaborative program in Canadian Studies at the PhD level. Because of its strength in relevant areas, its bilingual character and its location in the national capital, the University of Ottawa is uniquely positioned to offer a collaborative program leading to a specialization in Canadian Studies at the doctoral level. The program is especially designed for doctoral students in selected programs in the humanities and the social sciences who wish to enrich their training in a particular discipline by including an interdisciplinary component.

The program is governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies. 

Program Objectives

MA - PhD with Specialization in Experimental Psychology

The objective of this program is to train researchers in experimental psychology with emphasis on one of the following areas: behavioural neurophysiology, psychopharmacology, psychophysiology, human and animal cognition, learning, language, sleep and dreams, social, cognitive and emotional development, perception, intergroup relations, motivation, and the social psychology of health and work.

MA - PhD with Specialization in Clinical Psychology

The purpose of this program is to provide doctoral training in the area of clinical psychology and prepare students to work with adults and children. Professional training includes exposure to cognitive-behavioural, experiential, systemic/interpersonal, and community consultation approaches. Thesis supervisors within the clinical program have special expertise in areas such as the social development of children, behaviour problems in children, social skills training, depression, psychotherapy, marital therapy, family psychology, correctional psychology, community psychology and program evaluation. Students may also elect to choose a thesis supervisor from the Experimental program.

This program is fully accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA).

In Ontario, practice as a psychologist is governed by statute law; graduation from the doctoral program in clinical psychology does not by itself qualify a person to practice as a psychologist. For further information, the College of Psychologists of Ontario should be contacted, at the following address: The Registrar, The College of Psychologists of Ontario, 110 Eglinton Avenue West, Suite 500, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1A3, Tel: 416-961-8817, Fax: 416-961-2635.

Regulations of the School of Psychology prohibit students from being involved in the private practice of psychology, outside of practica and internships, unless they have received explicit permission from the director of the clinical psychology program to do so.

Co-ordination of the Programs

The Graduate Studies Committee, and its two permanent subcommittees (for the programs in experimental and clinical psychology, respectively) ensure the ongoing co-ordination of the programs, in keeping with the regulations in effect for graduate studies.

Learn more on application deadlines, language requirements and more by visiting the specific requirements webpage.

The normal minimum requirement for admission into either of the two programs (MA - PhD in Clinical Psychology or MA - PhD in Experimental Psychology) is the Honours Bachelor in Psychology, or its equivalent, including an Honour's thesis or an equivalent individual research project. In addition, course requirements include a course in History and Systems of Psychology (or its equivalent), and two courses in statistical analysis (or their equivalents). If these course requirements are not met at the time of admission, the candidates will be required to complete them within the first two years of graduate studies. (For the program in Clinical Psychology, in order to meet a component of the academic requirements for enrollment with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, a minimum of twenty undergraduate psychology courses is required for admission.)

Each file is assessed to determine whether equivalences will be granted on the basis of courses completed at the master’s level. Candidates for the clinical program with fewer than 21 units of equivalencies will be admitted to the MA level while those with 21 or more units of equivalencies will be admitted directly to the PhD.

Exceptionally, admission to the Experimental Psychology program is possible on the basis of a four-year Honour's degree in another discipline relevant to Psychology, with a letter of support from the prospective supervisor. The degree must include a thesis or an equivalent individual research project and the equivalent of at least 36 units (12 one-term courses) in Psychology, including statistics and some research experience.

Note: Students with a strong background in mathematics, physical sciences, biological science or computer science are especially encouraged to apply.

Only students who intend to complete the doctorate are admitted. Those holding an Honours Bachelor in Psychology are admitted to the MA program and are permitted to transfer to the PhD after one year, provided their performance in courses and research is satisfactory. Those already holding a master’s in psychology are admitted directly to the PhD program.

Requests for admission are examined by an Admissions Committee in accordance with the admissions policy of the Council of the School of Psychology.

Second Language Requirements

All students must meet certain second language requirements (in English or in French) in order to obtain their doctoral degree.

Collaborative Program in Canadian Studies

Admission to the collaborative program in Canadian Studies at the doctoral level is determined by the coordination committee and will normally take place before the end of the first year of enrollment in the doctoral program. Students must meet the following conditions to be accepted:

  • Enrollment in the doctoral program of one of the participating units.
  • Enrollment in, or successful completion of, at least one course with Canadian content in the participating unit where the student is enrolled.
  • Selection of the thesis topic with Canadian content. The coordination committee will determine, in consultation with the thesis director, if the Canadian content of the thesis meets the requirements of the collaborative program.

The title of the degree will in each case specify the discipline of the participating unit with specialization in Canadian Studies.

Students should be able to understand and read both official languages of Canada in order to participate in the bilingual interdisciplinary seminar CDN 6910.

PhD Degree Requirements

A) CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

The program in Clinical Psychology includes 17 courses. In addition to required clinical courses, students in Clinical Psychology must complete four fundamental courses in psychology to meet CPA accreditation criteria for the core content areas of psychology (although equivalencies may be granted for some fundamental courses by the Director of the clinical program) and four supplementary clinical courses. For students entering the program with courses completed at the master's level, at the discretion of the Director of the clinical program, equivalencies may be granted for up to a maximum of 30 units. Although the program may be completed in 5 years (as outlined below), most students complete in 6 years.

NOTE: Students are free to take courses in both languages. Please refer to the equivalent French course code.

The composition of the thesis committee must be approved by the director of the experimental program and should be determined shortly before submission of the thesis proposal. 

PhD Degree with Recognition of Professional Bilingual Competence

The student will have completed a portion of the program requirements in each of Canada’s official languages. More specifically, the following conditions must be met: 

Clinical Program

  • Completion of one formal course (lecture or seminar format) in each of the official languages with assignments to be completed in the language of the course and completion in the student’s second language of a significant portion of the thesis (e.g. general introduction and general discussion).
  • Completion of at least two formal courses (lecture or seminar format) in each of the official languages with assignments to be completed in the language of the courses.
  • Clinical training: Completion of provision of psychological services to at least one client during the practicum or internship in each of the two official languages.

Experimental Program

  • Courses: Completion of at least one formal course (lecture or seminar format) in each official language with assignments to be completed in the language of the course.
  • Thesis: Completion of a significant portion of the thesis in the student’s second language (e.g. general introduction and general discussion).
  • Teaching: Satisfactory completion of one teaching assistantship of no less than 60 hours in each official language including in each case a minimum of three hours of formal lecturing. Equivalent substitutes may be approved by the director of the experimental program.

The satisfactory fulfillment of the above requirements (re: courses) will be monitored by the program directors.

Note: In the experimental program, the first of these requirements must be completed before the other two.

Collaborative Program in Canadian Studies

Students enrolled in the collaborative program will be asked to meet both the requirements of their primary program and those of the collaborative program. The requirements of the collaborative program will serve as partial fulfillment of the requirements of their primary program.

The specific requirements of the collaborative program include the following:

Compulsory Courses:
3 course units from:3 Units
Séminaire sur la francophonie canadienne 1
Seminar in Canadian Studies

Submission and successful defence of a thesis on a Canadian topic in the participating unit.

The proposed topic must be approved by both the participating unit and the Canadian Studies Graduate Committee. At least one of the examiners of the thesis must be a person chosen in consultation with the executive committee of the Institute of Canadian and Aboriginal Studies.

Note(s)

1

Before enrolling in CDN 6520, students must check to see whether this course can replace a three unit course in their primary program. CDN 6520 is offered only in French.

Duration of the Program

Students are expected to complete all requirements within four years. The maximum time permitted is six years from the date of initial enrollment in the program.

Residence

Minimum requirements for the Clinical Psychology Program are 12 consecutive terms in full-time residence, and minimum requirements for the Experimental Program are nine consecutive terms in full-time residence.

While the Clinical Psychology Program may be completed in four years (12 terms), completion of all requirements of the program of studies typically requires further terms. Residency must be completed at the beginning of the program.

Minimum Standards

The passing grade in all courses is C+. Students who fail two courses (equivalent to 6 units), the thesis proposal, or whose research progress is deemed unsatisfactory are required to withdraw.

Second Language Requirements

Students who, at the time of admission, can provide proof of their competence in both English and French (e.g., prior post-secondary education in both languages, certificate of linguistic competency) are deemed to meet the language requirement.

All students must meet certain second language requirements (English or French) in order to obtain their doctoral degree. These requirements can be met in one of four ways:

  • by passing the FLS 1000 proficiency test administered by the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (ILOB)
  • by successfully completing a compulsory graduate course in which all course requirements will have been met in the second language
  • writing the Thesis in the second language, or
  • by successfully completing a second year course designated by the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (FLS 2511 or ESL 2111). The grade received for this course will appear as a ‘S’ (satisfactory) or ‘NS’ (not satisfactory) on the official transcript.  In this case, as this is an undergraduate course, a Satisfactory is considered to be a 50% or higher. 

A candidate holding a student visa, and whose first language and language of instruction prior to university studies were neither English nor French, is considered by the School of Psychology to have fulfilled the second language requirement.  

Note that this is different from the PhD degree with recognition of professional bilingual competence.

Thesis Advisory Committee

A thesis advisory committee (also referred to as the thesis proposal committee) is formed a few months before the student submits the thesis proposal for evaluation. The committee's membership is determined by the specific research content of the thesis proposal. The committee comprises four members including the thesis supervisor. At least one member, other than the supervisor, must be a regular full time member of the School of Psychology. Depending on the thesis topic, other members may be associated with other departments or have adjunct, cross-appointed, or clinical appointments in Psychology. 

The thesis proposal is approved by committee consensus following a formal oral presentation to the committee members. Following the meeting, informal meetings may be held with the student and individual members or all members with the goal of guiding the student towards successful completion of the thesis.
