The psychology program offers you solid training in all these dimensions.


Student Profile


To know how to listen and communicate with ease. Showing curiosity about both normal and abnormal human behavior. Demonstrate rigor, critical thinking and openness.


Program Overview


To thoroughly probe the depths of human behavior, a range of courses is available to you. Some will focus more on the major theories that deepen our understanding of the human. Others, on the other hand, will be interested in the scientific, methodological and analytical tools that give teeth to theories.
