About

Psychology is a basic science that studies human behaviour and its associated mental processes in an array of domains such as personality, cognition and the like. 

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology at METU Middle East Technical University on the Northen Cyprus Campus has both theoretical and applied dimensions. Whether a psychologist studies human behaviour as a scientist like any other basic science field such as physics or chemistry, or practices psychology in a plethora of applied fields (clinical, developmental, industrial/organizational, etc.) does not change the basic training students at undergraduate level receive. In other words, the training psychology students receive at undergraduate level is designed within the framework of what is called "scientist-practitioner" model. Such training enables graduates to develop ways of answering professional questions via scientific methods or adhere to scientific sources and methods.

In a nutshell, psychology is the study of mind and behaviour. 

The discipline embraces all aspects of:

  •  human experience, from functions of the brain to group behaviour
  • developmental issues from infancy to old age
  • from romantic relationships to relationships within the workplace
  • from drivers' and pilots' decision making processes to consumer choices. 

On top of these, in the initial semesters all students are subjected to introductory psychology as well as statistics and research methods – the backbone of acquiring knowledge not just in psychology but in science, in principle. We also endeavour to raise a full awareness of ethical issues and responsibilities of psychologists in both practice and research by means of discreet subjects dedicated to these issues and embedding ethical matters in pretty all subjects taught.
