Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Psychology

Psychology is defined as the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. Psychology looks at the person, the mind, thoughts, emotions and behaviour using scientific methods. As our society continues to progress with technology, it is evident that a large percentage of our lives are online - how technology influences our thoughts and behavior, and ultimately how it shapes us as individuals and as a society are key focus areas for human behaviour experts today.

As the modern society places more emphasis on mental health and psychological wellbeing, there is no better time for you to consider a career in psychology. You can explore careers in education, social services, human resources, training & consultancy, social science researcher, counterintelligence analyst, social media threat analyst etc.

As a graduate of the APU Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Psychology programme or the APU/DMU dual award Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Psychology programme, you will be equipped with knowledge from technology-infused psychology modules such as cyberpsychology, which is a scientific inter-disciplinary domain that focuses on the psychological phenomena which emerge because of human interaction with digital technology. Because here at APU we believe that in this digital era, a career in human mental health will require both the human touch like structuring of mental health assessments as well as technological know-how, using modern technology tools for psychology assessments and analysis. This will offer you a stronger edge in the modern and technology-driven world, in addition to the more conventional psychology teaching.
