Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB) Graduate Program HANDBOOK (it's going to be good!)

This Wiki version of the PNB Graduate Handbook was started in April 2018, with a small group of editors. We will be adding lots of information over the next few weeks. If you would like to join our editing group, let us know!

PNB Graduate Handbook LOGO competition: It's a small thing, but this Wiki needs a logo. Do you have artistic talents? Are you interested in submitting an entry to our logo competition? The logo should be something that represents the research by graduate students in PNB. My first attempt is the human brain you see in the top left corner - but that is rather predictable, right? Do you have a better idea, or a better interpretation of a stylistic brain? It is challenging because the logo is expected to be 135 x 135 pixels, simple, eye-catching, and representative of PNB.

This handbook is for graduate students in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB), at McMaster University. Our department has a strong research base in the areas of Animal Behaviour, Systems and Behavioural Neuroscience, Cognition/Perception, Developmental Psychology and Evolution and Social Behaviour, as well as our new Research and Clinical Training stream. The breadth of faculty research areas provides a rich environment for graduate training.

There are 30 core faculty in PNB, several associate faculty members, and approximately 100 graduate students. Our graduate program is strongly research-oriented and provides flexibility to optimize the program around the interests of the student. There is a strong collegial environment in the department that supports scientific interactions among faculty and students, and, as a consequence, students often undertake research projects with more than one faculty member. The graduate program introduces students to the issues and questions in the field of Experimental Psychology and trains them in the theoretical basis and research approaches used to study the problems. If you cannot find the information you need on our Graduate Studies pages, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) maintains a page where you can find various forms and guides. These forms, and the links to them, tend to change occasionally. We'll provide links directly to some of the forms in various places in the handbook; if you find a broken link, look for the form directly on the SGS resources page.
