Brock University has six distinct faculties: Social Science, Applied Health Sciences, Science, Humanities, Education, and Business. Faculties are typically comprised of several independent but related departments. Psychology is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences. As a Psychology student, then, you aren’t just associated with the Psychology department -- you are also part of the Faculty of Social Sciences.
Each department, including Psychology, has a Chair who is responsible for overseeing its operation. Each faculty has a Dean who is responsible for overseeing the operation of all of the individual departments. Department chairs report to the Dean of their faculty, and each Dean reports to the President of the University.
Psychology is one of 16 departments in the Faculty of Social Science here at Brock University. We have 25 full time faculty members and several part-time instructors. We also have three Administrative Assistants working in the main office, a Department Administrator who does our academic advising, and a Department Coordinator who manages our Introductory Psychology course.
Each faculty member teaches undergraduate and/or graduate level psychology courses and is also actively engaged in conducting psychological research.
