Master's in Psychiatry Research

Developing skills in research

The two year graduate program equips students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as professionals in clinical and neuroscience research concerning mental health and illness. The coursework covers relevant current topics including clinical trials, genetics, neuroimaging, participatory research, psychotherapy research, early interventions, and personalized psychiatry.  Students will improve their skills in critical appraisal, study design, statistics, data analysis, and scientific writing. Each student will complete an independent Masters’ thesis research project under the supervision of one of our faculty. You will find a list of faculty supervisors and possible thesis projects on our supervisors page.

Applications and supporting documents for the class starting in September 2018 are due by Jan. 8, 2018. Candidates should also contact potential supervisors indicating their interest in working under the faculty member’s supervision. For additional details, please contact Jennifer Brown
