Psychology Department

Philosophy

The Psychology Department is committed in offering comprehensive education, scientific research and service towards society. The educational programmes are designed to provide students with a powerful academic background in Psychology and skills necessary to every professional in this field.
 
Students are encouraged to develop critical thinking, creative abilities, interpersonal skills, moral principles and professional credibility, in an open – accepting environment where student’s education, support and guidance is a core belief.
 
Acquiring knowledge and understanding theories, concepts and empirical approaches applied in psychology, is another goal. Therefore, the training programme embraces a wide spectrum of theoretical approaches, including: biological, developmental, educational, clinical, organisational, individual, social, cognitive and educational psychology. Alongside, part of the students’ education, through elemental lab courses, is the understanding and comprehension of research methodology and statistical analysis of empirical data. Also, Department’s programmes cultivate competence both through practice in the scientific field and via research programmes under the supervision of the academic staff.
 
End result of all the above is the growth of excellent knowledge and unique confidence.
