    A Psychology degree with Honours is the first essential step for articulation to future membership and training in professional Psychology. Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes. Because of its wide applicability on many aspects of human's lives, the study of psychology is a good preparation for further studies and many professions (e.g. management and marketing, design, health care). The programme aims to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge in different disciplines of psychology for employment and further studies.

This will ensure that students are equipped with the essential knowledge(e.g. experimental work), to position them advantageously for further study, research work and/or a career in the psychological profession.
