Students

Our graduate students are highly valued members of the quantitative methods area. The majority of our students are funded by external grants, such as SSHRC doctoral fellowships, Canadian Graduate Scholarships, and Ontario Graduate Scholarships as well serving as statistical consultants through the Statistical Consulting Service.

In addition, our graduate students are highly collaborative and productive, publishing with faculty and other students not only in quantitative and statistical journals but also in other substantive journals in psychology.
