Got a question for us?
What are our students saying?
The course has broadened my knowledge of various psychological concepts and theories as well as how to measure human mind and behavior. In addition, I have learned the essential skills of gathering and assessing our personality with the proper psychological instruments
Since young I have always been fascinated on how the human mind works and how the outcomes differ from one human to another. Hence I chose to further my studies in psychology. Based on the institutes that I looked up, CUCMS offered a psychology course that provided a comprehensive and rigorous syllabus. I was introduced to case studies to enhance my critical thinking skills apart from aiding the learning process. I am also exposed to research methodology as it helps me to determine my area of interest.
Studying psychology in CUCMS is a fulfilling learning experience as they gave us the opportunity to think out of the box and being innovative in our learning experience. The lecturers also played a major role along my studies in guiding me towards my future career prospects in Psychology. As I learn more during the course of my studies, I became more motivated to understand about the capabilities and possibilities of the human mind. I find that learning psychology also help myself find the road to self-discovery.
