Taylor’s University offer undergraduate in Psychology programme for new academic year
Taylor’s University School of Communication (SOC) has recently announced its admission intake for interested candidates in the Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) programme. The course is designed to ensure a holistic development from self-discovery, to relationship competency and progressively to leadership formation.
According to the Dean of SOC, Ms. Josephine Tan Lian Lei, the curriculum lays the foundation for a conceptual and analytical understanding of the applied aspects in psychology. “This course prepares students for a research career as well as a stepping stone to continue their education in a Masters programme. The syllabus underwent a stringent review process, in accordance with the Malaysian Qualifications Agency.”
As a key feature to aid their educational progress, students from the second year will undertake an experiential learning of group dynamics through a system called PODZ. They will have an opportunity to share their highlights and challenges of the course; personal experiences or discuss case studies with their designated team.
Dr. Johnben Loy, Founder and Clinical Director of Rekindle Centre for Systemic Therapy, felt that the degree’s emphasis on self-discovery, interpersonal mastery and growing the leader will help students attain the necessary skills and capabilities to take their productive place as leaders in the global community. “I am very excited that Malaysia will have a psychology programme delivered at a top-notch university that will draw upon leading-edge knowledge in psychology – the art as well as the science – to grow students in personal and life-changing ways,” he accounted.
Additionally, the undergraduate course epitomises the essence of the Taylor’s SHINE Award programme. Participating students will undergo a journey which uncovers four learning packages to help develop five critical skills: Collaboration, Communication, Cultural Adaptation, Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, and Creativity & Innovation. The three-year course is available to students in the Arts and Science stream with a minimum entry requirement of CGPA 2.00.
