Applied Social Psychology Graduate Handbook - PhD

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 PhD level, students will conduct research that makes a significant contribution to applied social psychology, continue to gain community experience (if desired), and continue to gain breadth and depth of knowledge through the qualifying exam and the remaining courses in theory, methods, and applied social content.
