Master of Education in Counselling Psychology; Dual Degree Programs Overview
Mental health and counselling psychology in a global context
Three dual degree programs offer pathways between U of T's Master of Education (MEd) in Counselling Psychology, Global Mental Health and Counselling Psychology (GMHCP) field, and the following international programs:
- Master of Medicine in Psychiatry and Mental Health (MMed); China Medical University (CMU)
- Master of Science in Applied Psychology (MSc); China Medical University (CMU)
- Master of Applied Psychology (MAP); Zhejiang University (ZJU)
Students will gain both degrees in three years rather than the four years it would take to acquire the degrees independently.

Why I Chose Applied Psychology & Human Development
Nivatha Moothathamby (Master of Arts 2021)
PhD student in Developmental Psychology and Education
"My journey at OISE has been filled with establishing positive and supportive relationships, learning the nuances of psychology and education, and understanding my role as a scholar and an activist. As a Tamil-Canadian, I come from a community that has faced racial injustices and intergenerational trauma. The Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development has provided me with academic resources and a community to explore and expand on these parts of my identity. Overall, OISE’s deep commitment to inclusion, diversity and equity is what drew me to apply. I found my place here."
