The psychology curriculum guides students to develop expertise and skills in the study of human behaviour. Specifically, the curriculum aims to equip students with an in-depth knowledge of psychology and its place among the social sciences; arouse their interest in the exploration of human behaviour and experience; familiarize them with the process of conducting and evaluating psychological research; and extend and apply what they have learnt to their own daily lives. Furthermore, upon successful completion of the psychology curriculum, students should have developed the aptitude and abilities necessary to pursue postgraduate or professional studies.
Many of the psychology graduates are employed in the areas of counseling, social services and psychology-related fields. Some of them are also working in the commercial sector in areas such as public relations, advertising, marketing, human resource management and market research.
The programme also prepares psychology graduates with the skills and knowledge needed for postgraduate studies (by research or coursework) in psychology, such as clinical or educational psychology or other related fields.
Having completed this psychology degree programme with satisfactory results, students should be eligible for graduate membership of the Hong Kong Psychological Society.
