For the first time in Sri Lanka, RIC Introduces BSc Psychology from the University of LondonView(s):
Psychology has emerged as an interesting and popular degree to pursue in Sri Lanka lately. Students are attracted to this novel yet exciting field because of its potential to help them understand and improve their own lives, as well as the lives of others.
The most significant reason for the increasing popularity of Psychology as a degree in Sri Lanka is the high rate of mental health issues reported in the country and increased awareness on the need for well qualified mental health professionals.
Another reason why Psychology is a popular degree is its ability to lead individuals to a variety of interesting and rewarding careers. For example, graduates of Psychology can become counselors, researchers, educators, and mental health advocates – the options are endless. These careers can be very fulfilling while creating a positive change in the lives of those in the receiving end.
For the first time in Sri Lanka, Royal Institute of Colombo (RIC) has introduced a full-fledged BSc degree in Psychology from the prestigious University of London, with the academic direction coming from the world renowned King’s College, London – which is ranked #2 in the world for Psychology, according to the US News Best Global University.
