Salutations!

I’m Dr. Michael Snyder, an instructor in the Department of Psychology at Grant MacEwan University. My primary areas of focus are in Learning and Behavioural Psychology and Evolutionary Psychology.

I received my PhD in 2000 from the University of Alberta for researching spatial representation by hunting waterstriders. Uh-huh. Bug psychology. Before that I received an MA in History and a BSc in Zoology. If one is kindly, you’d call this having “eclectic interests”; less charitably this could be called “too many interests.”

I was a Faculty Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Alberta from 2000-2011 where I taught courses in learning and behaviour, spatial representation, evolutionary psychology, and advertising psychology.

This year I’ll be teaching a lot of Psyco 281 (Principles of Behaviour)!
