Applied Social Psychology Graduate Handbook - MA

2024-2025 Handbook

Introductory remarks

Graduate study in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Guelph is designed to prepare students for applied research careers in a wide range of settings. Our program is best suited to those students who wish to investigate social processes and problems of significance to the general community and to specific groups, for example, problems in the areas of aging, health, law, inequality, community services, work, minorities, ethnic groups, and gender. At the MA level, students will conduct their own research, gain community experience through a practicum, and take a number of foundational courses in theory, methods, and applied social content.
