Course Description

Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. It has become one of the most important and widely applicable disciplines with its popularity being largely due to the discipline’s authority in unraveling one of the most frequently asked questions in our society, ie., why do people do the things they do?

Psychology encompasses a broad spectrum of subjects including biology, physiology, sociology, anthropology and statistics. Persons trained in psychology can contribute significantly in a variety of settings. For example, in a clinical environment, psychologists work with other medical personnel to study, manage, treat and prevent physical and psychological disorders. In corporate organisations, psychologists are involved with the recruitment, counselling or training of employees. In the area of education, psychologists identify and assist people who need help with learning issues and support teachers in the implementation of learning strategies. A sport psychologist works with athletes to maximise their physical and mental abilities. Regardless of the context in which psychologists work, all psychologists are trained to use principles of psychology to observe, assess, analyse and provide appropriate evidence-based interventions for the needs of our society.

Due to the versatility of the discipline, psychology is fast becoming one of the most sought after subjects among University students in countries such as the United Kingdom, United States of America and Australia. A similar trend is being observed in Southeast Asia as the contributions of psychology to the health, education and corporate sectors become more widely recognised. The small group teaching in IMU along with the individualised attention positively enhances students’ learning. Undergraduate study in psychology at IMU also provides a sound basis for further professional training and research at the MSc or PhD level in psychology. Our graduates have successfully transferred to both local and international universities to further their education in their specialised fields. The psychology programme at IMU provides the important intellectual and applied tools for those considering careers in management, law, education, social work, public relations, and other health-related professions.
