Our graduates are particularly suited for people-oriented jobs such as human resources, public relations, customer services, children and youth services, education and training, counselling and guidance, health-related services, family and community work, etc. Students are also well-prepared for jobs that require strong research skills and competence, critical analysis and communication abilities, such as scientific or applied research, research and development, project management and so on. Students who aspire to practise as professional psychologists will be able to pursue advanced education at the Master's or doctoral level in Hong Kong or overseas with training in pursuing scientific research or applied psychological training such as health, forensic, clinical, educational, counselling and occupational psychology.
Graduates who satisfy the requirements stipulated by the Hong Kong Psychological Society (HKPS) can apply for Graduate Membership of the Society (Note: Graduate Membership of the HKPS is normally regarded as an entrance requirement for advanced training in professional psychology).
