Clinical psychology graduate program to double
Each year, between 60 to 80 applicants from across Canada apply to the University of Manitoba’s clinical psychology graduate program. That’s 10 times the amount that can currently be accepted into the program. On July 21, the Province of Manitoba announced it will invest $412,000 to double the number of seats in the training program with the initial added seats opening in fall 2024. This is the first significant increase in student seats to this program in decades and will do much to help fill the urgent need for clinical psychologists in Manitoba.
Applications for the fall 2024 intake of the clinical psychology graduate program open September 1, 2023. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2023. Apply
Programs of study
Become a graduate student in Psychology at UM
Together, the students, faculty, and staff of the Department of Psychology have developed an outstanding learning and research environment. We have an energetic, productive and caring department that will provide the support, education and research opportunities you need to reach your goals. Our students have an outstanding record of success in funding and awards, achievements in research and scholarship and placement in academic and professional careers.
Once you settle on an area of specialization for graduate studies, it is a good idea to contact a professor or two with whom you might like to work both to introduce yourself and to ask for more information about their interests and research.
The Department of Psychology, the University of Manitoba and the greater Winnipeg community combine to provide excellent opportunities for both basic and applied research. In most areas of psychological interest, research opportunities are limited only by the creativity and initiative of the investigator.
There is tremendous value in collaboration between UM-based researchers and community settings in addressing important applied and basic research problems. This collaboration is an important asset for staff and students.
Working relationships have been developed with government departments, schools, daycare centres, treatment facilities, social agencies and other community organizations.
