Social Psychology (MA)

Program Overview
Career Opportunities
Program Structure

The Master of Arts in Social Psychology program is designed to facilitate the development of skilled individuals who wish to pursue a professional career where they can be instrumental in improving the functioning of the society at an extensive range of levels such as health, law, media, politics, education, business and international relations.

 

Like many other Masters programs at GAU, MA in Social Psychology is also programmed to facilitate further educational, professional and personal development for individuals at work. On this basis, the lectures are scheduled to run at convenient times for the ‘working student’ (evenings), over a three- semesters/ year format. The normal progress will mean completion of the MA degree in Social Psychology in two years.

 

Program Requirements The program requires completion of 5 core courses and 3 elective courses. All courses will be 3 semester-hours and the students must therefore complete a total of 8 courses. In addition, the student has to complete a research-based thesis and successfully defend the thesis in a viva voce examination run by 3 senior academic members from departments relevant to the topic of the completed thesis.

 

All students who do not have a first degree in Psychology or Sociology will be required to take the bridging courses in Social Psychology and Sociology before commencing the MA in Social Psychology Program.
