Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Graduate Studies
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Psychology, General
Description Dalhousie's MSc Psychology program is not a traditional, stand-alone master's program. For our graduate students, it's just the beginning of the road toward a PhD. We view our master's program as a fundamental component of the PhD program itself. Our MSc Psychology students are expected to do research in experimental psychology and move on to the PhD program upon completion of their master's degree.

  • Graduate Record Examination

English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written. Applicants must also submit GRE scores.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
  • Statement of Research Interests
Applicants are required to submit at least two letters of reference from two different referees, and a letter indicating their research and career interests. There is no page limit for this statement but it is usually no longer than 1-2 pages. Please visit the website for complete details.
