What can I do with a Psychology Degree?
A simple response to the above question might be, “just about anything that involves working with people.” The study of Psychology is an excellent preparation for many rewarding careers, professions and post graduate options in both Sri Lanka and overseas.Psychology is best defined as the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. It gives us the skills and knowledge to help ourselves and others.
The field of Psychology has become one of the most attractive and exciting career choices today. The recent increase in alcoholism, suicide rates and youth unease together with psychological disorders caused by war, tsunami and other natural disasters are clear indications of the urgency and the demand for more practical and hands-on psychology education in Sri Lanka. A degree in Psychology can lead to many rewarding careers in Health and Wellness, Marriage/Family Counseling, Medicine, Relief and Social Work, Human Resources, Non Government Organizations (NGO), Organizational Development, Training & Development, Marketing and many more.
Limited higher education options in Psychology prevented Sri Lankan students from enjoying the benefits of this rewarding career in the past. Students were compelled to continue non-university qualifications with limited recognition and value. Advantages of a university Psychology degree are many. The most important aspect is the global and local recognition for career advancement and option of choosing different career fields. Also students who are seeking post graduate qualifications must complete a bachelor’s degree in Psychology to entry to university programs.
Opportunities in Psychology
According to Dr. Nancy Stone – Ph. D. (Texas Tech University) – Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology – Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S & T), USA “The psychology education in Sri Lanka was traditionally restricted to a fortunate few who enjoyed the luxury of foreign University education. The Missouri S&T Psychology degrees at ANC prepares Sri Lankan and regional students to face the challenges in the job market by giving them the core applied and practical knowledge, decision making skills and the required communication skills” stated Dr.Stone who recently visited Missouri S&T International Program Center (IPC) in Sri Lanka.
As also observed by Professor Stone “upon the completion of their BA or BS Psychology degrees at ANC graduates have opportunity of pioneering a rewarding, in-demand field, with immediate multiple options for career specialization. Also, or alternatively, graduates may elect to further their studies with post graduate degrees or licenses abroad or locally. The Missouri S&T degree offered at ANC is exactly the same as that offered in the US Campus. This is an ideal opportunity for Sri Lankan students to become a part of our world leading education experience without leaving Sri Lanka” concluded Dr.Stone.
