Department of Psychology

Psychology is increasingly recognized as one of the most important disciplines not only in the fields of business, management and economic decision making, but also among the entire body of Social Sciences. Recently, the Nobel Prize for Economics went to a psychologist who had devoted his academic career for discovering as to how people make financial decisions. National education data shows that psychology is among the most popular disciplines in Pakistan. At the moment, there are thousands of psychology graduates without too many opportunities for post-graduate education or specialization. The Psychology Department at UCP seeks to meet the needs of both, students and job market.

Additionally, the Psychology Department strives to meet the needs of industry which, at the moment, is plagued by demoralization and de-motivation. This year we plan to launch several psychology-based training programs for people in industry, business and management to help improve their performance and career prospects. We will offer special certificate courses and workshops for HR professionals so that they can perform better in their personal and professional capacity. Workshops on Time Management and Stress Management will also be held for professionals from different fields.

We also equip students in other faculties with basic knowledge of psychology by offering certain introductory level courses. This practice will continue this year with an effort to rationalize and standardize the input provided by the department.
