Introduction to the Programme
Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and the human mind. At Middlesex University Dubai, we offer a solid grounding in modern psychology – a body of theoretical and practical knowledge concerning human behaviour and experiences. This programme combines a broad education in psychology with a specialist strand to develop counselling and interpersonal skills together with an understanding of the theory and practice of counselling.
You will focus on the systems and theories that underpin both psychology and counselling, culminating in the submission of a portfolio of research and knowledge. Graduates of the programme will be eligible and well-prepared to undertake specialised postgraduate training to become qualified to practice as clinical or counselling psychologists.
Combining Psychology with Another Discipline
This Honours degree programme offers students a solid grounding in Psychology but also allows some specialisation in complementary areas through the various pathways available. The programme is specifically designed for those who wish to pursue a career within clinical or counselling occupations where a detailed understanding of human behaviour is important. The psychology programme has a strong focus on the practical investigation of human behaviour, culminating in the opportunity to undertake an independent piece of research in the final year.

This programme is designed for those who wish to pursue a career where an in-depth understanding and knowledge of human behaviour is essential, and counselling skills are an important asset. It is important to note that though as a graduate of this programme you will not be qualified to practice as either a counsellor or psychologist, but you will be eligible and well-prepared to undertake specialised postgraduate training leading into these professions.
