Programme Overview

An undergraduate degree in psychology can either be used to transition into a Master’s/Doctoral program or to meet the degree requirements often found in private business and government employment sectors. In other words, if the job requires a bachelor’s degree, this will suffice.

For the most part, society views a person with a Bachelor’s in Psychology as having certain insights and business acumen with regards to human thought and behavior. The positions available in most every public or private institution will be entry-level, and one may or may not be able to rise to higher pay scales and levels of responsibility.
