- How does the mind work?
- Ever had a word “right on the tip of your tongue?”
- Do some songs make you happy, others sad?
- Has a smell ever suddenly reminded you of an event or place in your past?
Psychologists study these and other common phenomena. But, they go far beyond: They study human behaviour, both normal and atypical, and what dictates it.
In your 4-year journey in studying Psychology at Neapolis University in Cyprus, you will be able to contemplate, discuss and answer issues similar to the above.
Aims of the Psychology Programme
The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Psychology focuses on the study of individuals and groups, including their behaviours, thought processes, and emotions.
It is specifically designed to:
- help students understand the cognitive and affective processes that underlie human experience and behaviour
- acquire an in-depth understanding of fundamental psychological principles
- learn the techniques by which behaviours are evaluated and modified
- be able to apply theoretical principles to solve behavioural problems
- develop critical thinking, scientific reasoning and transferable skills such as academic writing
- apply knowledge and skills that will equip students to a wide range of professional pursuits
The general objective of the BSc in Psychology is to enhance understanding of behaviour and mental processes and to examine their connections to the fields of biology and the social sciences. This general objective is translated into specific objectives that concern the understanding of:
- scientific methodology,
- the current state of psychological knowledge, and
- the application of both methodology and knowledge to real-world problems
