Besides meeting the course requirements, applicants must rank Psychology as the first or second choice to be considered for the interview. There will be additional admission criteria to better target students who are aligned to the educational philosophy of our full-time programmes. This will be done through interviews and selection tests.

To pursue depth or breadth in the degree, students can take any one of the following specialisations as part of the Major Elective courses.

This programme is for all those who find Psychology interesting, and wish to pursue it either as a career or as an aid to some other career. The degree programme is enriching for those who are in jobs that involve working with people or that require an understanding of them. Sometimes, what is needed are skills to understand people as people; in other situations, an objective and detached judgement is required. In either case, however, grounding in Psychology is helpful.
A psychology bachelor's degree is a general social sciences degree. Graduates can basically work in any field. However, to pursue a career in psychology (e.g., as a clinical counsellor, educational, or academic psychologist), a higher degree in psychology is required (e.g. Master's or PhD). Some of our alumni, after having obtained an honours degree in psychology at SUSS, have pursued a master’s/ PhD degree at SUSS and in other local and international universities.
