Mission Statement

This major provides an opportunity to examine the human mind, and questions the essence of human nature. It offers students and the university a dynamic forum to approach an academic principle from an empirical and experiential perspective, and will be a place to acquire specialized psychological research and interdisciplinary research. As a university that offers Liberal Arts education of an international standard, we aim to educate students that can compete on an international scale.

Learning Goals

The history of psychology is the accumulation of using thought and scientific method to inquire into the essence of human nature and man's behavior. Students will start by gaining an understanding of historical findings and will acquire the following:

Basics:

Students will acquire fundamental methodologies of central psychological theories and research. The primary goal will be the acquisition of fundamental theories and research methodologies in a wide range of psychological fields including perception, cognition, biology, neurology, learning, language, developmental psychology, personality, education, counseling, clinical practices, organizations, communities, societies, cultures, and religions.

Intermediate:

Students will develop their understandings of advanced modern psychology, and cultivate the capabilities to speculate about modern society from the perspective of the human mind. Psychology's first goal is to apply modern psychology's interdisciplinary character to a Liberal Arts education in order to seek a link with disciplines such as education, biology, medicine, linguistics, law, geography, history, ethics, philosophy, social science, communications, and information science. The second goal will be to understand psychology and to use it as a foundation on which to establish an attitude of academic enquiry in the broader field of Liberal Arts.

Advanced:

Students majoring in Psychology will extend and deepen their understanding of the world by reassessing various social phenomena using a psychological perspective and by utilizing it as a lens when conducting their own research. Students can use their experiences in defining a specific research project, conducting data collection, and using data analysis as the basis for academic discussion, as the starting point for their academic research into the relationship between society and the 'mind'. The goal of a Psychology graduate's education is to instill an understanding of the idea of an individual's personality, in other words, understanding how the mind works in relationship to societal structuring,society and in addition being able to show an understanding of the dynamics of the international society to both sides of the argument, thereby cultivating their ability to contribute to world peace as "global citizens." In order to do so, it is important to facilitate students' capacity to meaningfully contribute to the field of psychological research by training them in understanding spirituality and religiosity, enhancing their international communication skills, and equipping them with and understanding of the workings of relationships on personal, national and international levels. This will allow them to successfully function in a variety of organizations and professional fields.
