Program Overview
Career Opportunities
Program Structure

Our mission at GAU Psychology is to equip students with skills that matter for their future careers based on the personal strengths and interests of the students. Psychology comes in two basic forms: research and applied. Psychology aims to understand scientifically how people develop, think and learn, feel and relate to one another. Psychology also aims to help solve problems that may arise in personal, inter-personal, group and organizational life. At GAU, we provide training for both branches of psychology. For our B.Sc. degree, our department offers a unique two track program depending on the undergraduate’s needs. After two years of foundational courses in psychology that build both research and applied skills, students who are more interested in research – and post-doctoral research-based degrees – take courses that lead to a final year research thesis. For those who want to take up a profession in an applied branch of psychology – such as clinical, forensic, educational or counselling psychology – courses are taken that develop the relevant skills and there is opportunity for an internship with a professional practice.


The GAU Psychology department offers three postgraduate studies: an MSc in Applied Social Psychology, an MSc in Health Psychology and MSc in Psychological Counselling and Guidance. The MSc in Applied Social Psychology has both general and forensic specializations.
