Psychology is a subject which is unique as it’s an area where most subjects intersect. As such there is always a huge demand for qualified psychologists as well as for other professionals in the field of study. However, there exists a huge void in the education sector in Sri Lanka as the opportunities are lacking to study Psychology as a degree level programme which is accredited in Sri Lanka itself.
Thus, the best private university in Sri Lanka, KIU offers a curriculum which is locally developed and approved by the UGC while offering the highest number of Elective Modules in a Psychology Degree Programme in Sri Lanka and our programme is the only Bachelor’s Degree Programme with both the independent research study and the Placement. The programme is delivered by a panel of PhD, MPhil and MSc qualified eminent lecturers who hold the highest qualifications in the field of Psychology.
KIU Bachelor of Science Honours in Psychology Degree Programme is designed to offer subjects that could easily cater to the rapidly developing world. Our Degree Programme places great emphasis on what the demands of the sectors are; hence is intended to meet such demands.
The academics of the Department of Psychology are engaged in a development oriented research project that won the World bank grant through the AHEAD project.
