Solve World Challenges

Psychology and Social Sciences is so much more than the study of human minds and behaviour, it is the study of how you engage with and meet the challenges of the world. It is understanding the human condition and appreciating your role in evolving human interactions on a personal, social and global level. We are committed to the art of improving social interactions, through the understanding of the ever-evolving scientific patterns of human cognition, emotions, behaviour and social interactions.

The University recognises the importance of mental health and the need for more professionals in the field. Currently, there is only 1 Psychologist per 100,000 Malaysians, according to a News Straits Times source, much lower than the recommended WHO ratio of 1 for every 10,000 people.

At University of Cyberjaya, students are able to complete their Diploma, Undergraduate as well as Postgraduate studies in Psychology studies, allowing them to have the most comprehensive coverage for knowledge related to the field. Students will also gain access to academics who are dedicated towards their profession as an educator as well as in the field of mental health. Our team of Psychology academics and students are one of the most active on campus – new students can look forward to being part of an engaging community.
