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 program is designed to give students an advanced level of understanding of the way that psychological theories and research have influenced our understanding of child and adult learning and teaching in educational settings. The aim is to direct students to develop an appreciation of traditional and contemporary research, knowledge and applications in the domain.
Psychology in Education provides a rich learning opportunity for students wanting to study educational psychology at Masters level and for those planning a career in teaching. The programmes provide a combination of core psychology courses along with modules pertaining to policy and practice in a range of classroom settings. This programme combines a broad education in Psychology with a specific attention to a specialisation in Education. Graduates of the programme will be eligible and well-prepared to either getting higher qualification in applied fields of psychology or studying a PGCE to pursue a career in Education.
Combining Psychology with another Discipline

The programme is specifically designed for those who wish to pursue a career where an understanding and knowledge of human resource management is essential. 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.

Mode of Study Options: It is expected that by September 2021 we will have In-person classes and these could be supported by an online element. It is too early to commit to a 100% Online at present as it will depend on the Health & Safety situation and KHDA permissions. We can say at present that if the Health & Safety situation warrants it there could be a 100% online along with in-person classes.
