In particular, the Applied Psychology degree from Middlesex University Dubai has been designed with the international student in mind introducing a wide variety of applications for psychology in the real world. This allows students to gain diverse academic skills and psychological knowledge which can be applied to their individual situations and careers. It may also be used as a stepping stone for personal development and potentially future studies in psychology.
The degree focuses on the application of psychological science to work and daily life and showcases the many fields covered by the psychology profession. These include counselling, trauma and neglect, wellness, and illness behaviour. In each case the understanding of human behaviour students gain can be generalised beyond the specific field of psychology. For example, counselling skills such as listening and re-formulating a problem are at the core of managerial skills. Also understanding how people manage their health and wellbeing is important in families dealing with illness or for individuals trying to kick bad habits such as smoking. Additionally, students will be getting an insight into the role environmental factors, such as trauma and neglect, play in psychological well-being. The program has a strong emphasis on research and analysis, which is inculcated through teaching these as modules and including in all taught modules.
Future Careers and Employability
The several areas of psychology covered provide an in-depth understanding of how psychology is applied in everyday life, thus furnishing students with the tools required for a successful career. In addition, there is an emphasis on research skills development culminating in the thesis project.
Applied Psychology graduates are concerned with the relations between people and work, and in the underlying causes of behaviour that impact on workplace or matters related to social policy. Therefore, their skills are relevant to both private and public sectors.
Opportunities for those with master’s degrees tend to be concentrated in areas related to health behaviour, well-being, helping profession, and industry; or students can further their expertise in ABA therapies to work with children of determination. The degree will enable successful students to further their studies in areas such as business, education, psychology, or care industries. In addition to this, successful graduates might join running research projects within various organisations, facilitating data collection, entry and analysis, and reporting research findings.
Our Careers and Employability Service (CES) offer students a range of support both while they’re studying and after graduation.
