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 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 and 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.
To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy the CityU's General Entrance Requirements.
For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma in a relevant discipline with a CGPA of ≥3.0, or an equivalent overall mark or credit award.
HKDSE students will apply through JUPAS. They may select this major after admission to the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. For details, click here.
