About the Program
The Psychology Department is a new faculty whose main goal is to qualify its students for graduate degrees in Psychology and/or allow them to integrate into the workforce in the professions that require the knowledge taught in this degree. The academic program provides the highest standards of theoretical, methodological and practical training in all sciences related to Psychology. The Psychology Department carries out all training sessions in small groups or one-on-one in a supportive environment, providing students with personal assistance in a collaborative learning environment.
The academic program is a single major program that integrates courses from one of two additional departments: the Department of Management and the Communications Department. The academic program provides students with practical professional experience in all fields of the wide spectrum of psychology. In addition to the development and comprehensive theoretical content, as well as research components of the program, the academic studies encourage the development of independent, critical, scientific and creative thinking.
The lecturers in the department represent the broad range of fields within the spectrum of psychology, including Adult Clinical Psychology, Child Psychology, Social Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Organizational Psychology, Neuropsychology, Musical Psychology, Occupational Psychology, and Health Psychology. They integrate excellence in all of their academic teaching along with active research or clinical/practical work in the field. The faculty members provide students in the program with personal attention and guidance in an effort to meet the unique needs of each and every one.
During their studies, students are offered a chance to take part in a variety of practical treatment opportunities. Among those collaborating with the faculty are a range of mental health facilities and psychiatric hospitals where students are integrated into primary treatment programs. This comprehensive training, which includes guidance and close assistance provided by clinical psychologists, serves as these students’ first exposure to the world of clinical therapy - which is very meaningful for the development of students’ identity as care providers, shaping their basic personal and interpersonal capabilities in their role as therapists.
