A global-community recognizes that events and forces such as major social changes, massive population growth, widespread human rights violations, increasing crime, violence, and substance abuse as well as increased awareness, communication, learning and sharing of knowledge associated with globalization are primary socialization influences affecting human wellbeing in contemporary societies. Thus, people may face with various biopsychosocial undesirable events and tend to have high level of anxiety, stress and even burnout which lead a demand for psychologists.

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior as well as multifaceted discipline. Psychologists investigate many sub-fields of study such areas as motivation, emotional well-being, conscious, human development, sports, health, clinical, social behavior and cognitive processes. Currently there is an increasing demand for psychologists because of the high rate psychological issues.

The Department of Psychology was established in 2010. The program combines the theory and practice of psychology and teaches techniques of individual and group psychological counseling and care, which are essential for a successful career in the field.
