The Psychology Major provides students with comprehensive training in psychology that emphasises research competence in the study of human behaviour, for further advancement in professional positions in human and social behavioural services.
Graduates of the Psychology Major will be particularly suitable for people oriented jobs such as human resources, public relations, customer services, children and youth services, education, counselling and guidance, health related services, family and community work. They will also be well-prepared for jobs that require strong research competence, critical analysis and communication abilities, such as training and development, applied research, scientific research, project management and data analysis. Students who aspire to practise as professional psychologists will be able to pursue advanced training at the Master or Doctoral level in Hong Kong or overseas in pursuing research or other areas of applied psychology including health, forensic, clinical, educational, counselling and occupational psychology.
Potential applicants will be required to submit a portfolio containing personal credentials, a personal statement and to sit for selection interviews.
